Hi Maria,

I hope you're well.

I'm just writing to say thanks for your help on the project last month. We really appreciate you stepping in to support us. I know you had to put in extra hours to catch up on your own work, so thank you very much.  

Your expertise was vital for this project and we couldn't have finished it successfully without you. You really helped us and we hope to work with you again on future projects.

I'll be in touch again soon about possible future collaborations. I look forward to working with you more closely this year.

All the best,

Paco

Thank you

Hi Mr. Ibrahim

I hope you’re well.
I’m just writing to say thank you for helping me during working in your hospital working as interpreter and studying at the university at the same time was very hard for me but you gave me a permission to go to the university while working, and you had given me a lot of advice that helped me in several issues.
Now after graduation I’m sure I wouldn’t do that if you hadn’t helped me.
Your role was vital for me, so thank you and be sure if you need anything I’m ready to help because I own you a lot.
I’ll be in tach again soon about asking you if you’re ok.
All the best.

Mohammad

Hello Beloved Mother.

My heart leaps for joy when I write to you, because we haven't seen each other for a long time.
I miss you so much mom, and I want to propose that you travel to Lima from Trujillo, to spend time together and also to work together.

Extra money wouldn't hurt. including tips of course. I'll call you tonight mother, see you soon.

Your daughter who loves you madly
...Mirian.

Never ever wrote a thank you message to a colleague, but I always show my gratitude to the people around me.

Hi Myat,
Thank you so much for lending me some money. I was really needed it when I ask you to borrow me some money. It was the time when my favorite perfume is on sale and I did not have enough money on my account.
Now I got the perfume on my hand and want to thank you again.
I really love the smell.
Let's eat out next Sunday. The food is on me.
See you my buddy.
