Is this idiomatic and natural?

1 You should have come to see us even if only to say hi.

"In passing" is that only used when referring to something said or like in the following example, passing through.

2 You should have come to see us even if only in passing.

Ps does the sentence make sense?
"In passing" is that only used when referring to something said or like in the following example, passing through a place.

Thank you
