Simple, random texts work.... I think....
We say "TOY" (thinking of you) randomly.
Or "I heard that song __________ and it reminded me of you."
Send photos.... of things around the house that you know will make him smile. The dog. You in his t-shirt. His favorite toys. Etc...
Write actual letters too... my h and I had a long distance relationship when we met. We wrote letters and emails. Sometimes just rambling stuff, silly stuff, homey stuff....
The guys deployed with my son in Afghanistan said they loved getting letters from home about regular, everyday stuff... what you've been working on, who mowed the grass, that funny neighbor that amuses you, etc...
