People have long forgotten how to truly thank, from the bottom of their hearts, for merits. A hasty "thank you" and a barely noticeable nod of the head do not express even a hundredth of what a person deserves. And he deserved attention, participation, deep and sincere gratitude. How do I express it? Very simply - in a letter.
Thank you letters can be used in both personal and business correspondence. But they perform one task - to express gratitude to the addressee. As a rule, such messages are drawn up either on the official letterhead of the organization, or on beautiful paper or on a postcard.
The letter of thanks begins with a respectful address - by name and patronymic. And right away you should express in words sincere gratitude with the designation of specific merits, which prompted you to voice your strong emotional response.
Letters in which you seek to express gratitude do not have strict requirements and standard wording. Write a free-form message. Use key phrases: "Thank you for …", "We express our gratitude for …", "Let me thank you for …", etc.
If this is a letter of gratitude to parents, it is necessary to mention the merits of the child, human qualities, knowledge. The letter of thanks to the teacher notes his pedagogical work and professionalism. The same should be mentioned in the message to the doctor. Don't write too much, at length, or in general terms.
The text of the letter of thanks should be short, capacious and consistent in the same style. Despite the brevity, try to find warm words, give up bureaucracy and "bureaucratic". Write in a friendly, formal style, mentioning an event or action that prompted you to express your gratitude in writing. If you wish, list other advantages of the addressee.
The letter must always be signed by hand, even if it is typed on a computer. If you are composing a message from an organization, you do not need to put a stamp.
