Tips On
Writing A Personal Thank You Letter

Writing A Thank You Letter:

1. Send a thank you letter as soon as possible after the event.

2. Your thank you letter does not need to be long. Keep it short and straight to the point. Business thank you letters should be typed and personal ones hand-written.

3. Make sure your thank you letter is appropriate for the occasion and sincere.

4. Check for grammar and spelling mistakes.

Writing A Sympathy Thank You Letter

Dear Jane and Tom,

We would like to express our sincere thanks for all your support you gave us when Mum died.

We especially appreciate you helping us with the daily tasks of preparing meals, cleaning and driving the kids to school while Thomas and I took care of Mum's funeral arrangements.

It is going to take some time for us to get over Mum's tragic death and we are taking each day as it comes. We are blessed to have such good friends as yourselves and we are sincerely grateful for all that you have done.

Kind regards,

Goodbye Messages For Colleagues Leaving

Dear Jane,

I heard you are moving to Sweden. No doubt it is wonderful there and a great place for a family to raise kids. I think it is a wise decision and the right one for you and your family.

You will be sorely missed but I am very excited for you. I wish you all the best for the next chapter in your life.

Warm regards,

Thank You Letter to Nurse

Dear Nurse Andrews,

I would like to thank you for taking care of my Father while he was on ward 2, in April of this year. 

It is due to your care and kindness that he recuperated so well from his operation.  He spoke so highly of you and always looked forward to your smiling face and thoughtful words.

You are one in a million and please know that your work is so appreciated.

I cannot thank you enough.

With kindest regards
