I'd like to give something to my cat sitter in a horrible situation.

My cat has died, which was horrible. Worse, I wasn't even home. I'd like to send my cat sitter something.

I don't blame the cat sitter at all. She did everything she could, even going above and beyond the call of duty.
My cat was old (I can't post a picture; looking at them breaks my heart. Please believe me that she was beautiful) and unwell, but I didn't realize just how sick. I feel like the worst person in the world. So when I spoke to the cat sitter on the phone after the incident I was in tears and barely coherent. I want her to know that I don't blame her -- in fact, I appreciate deeply that she was there for my cat in her last moments.
I was thinking of sending her a handwritten card, thanking her for all she did. Should I include a cheque? A gift card? For how much? I don't know her, she came from a cat sitting service, but we've used her a few times and she was always excellent (the only cat sitter my cat ever liked).
