How would you say "best wishes" to somebody that is having a hard time (looking after ill mother) - mes sentiments? or better je pense à toi.
Thanks.

    Je pense à toi. Bon courage !
    This is a commonly used expression that might be suitable. It's not easy to find an English equivalent.

    How would you use "best wishes" instead as the closing of a letter?

    For example, in place of "kind regards"?

    Is it "meilleurs voeux"??
    no, you'd say "meilleurs voeux" on Christmas cards or on Congratulation cards.
    In other letters, "Amitiés" might do.

    It's a formal letter, so I was looking for a closing like "Kind regards". In English we tend to close with "Best wishes".

    Is there a French equivalent?

    If it's a formal letter you will have to use one of these very long closing letter phrases "Je vous prie d'agréer, Monsieur/Madame, l'expression de mes sentiments respecteux" or something along the line.

    Salut, melu!

    C'est bien ce que je pensais . . . do you think I can use the one you suggested?

    "Je vous prie d'agréer, Monsieur, l'expression de mes sentiments respecteux"

    That whole line is the closing? And then just my name? Is that right??
