Being sick is never easy but your assistance relieved a lot of the stress involved and let me focus on recovering. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I won't forget it.

Sincerely, “

Thank You for Help with Sick Child or Relative

“Dear Friends,

  I can't begin to express my gratitude for what you've done. It hasn't been easy dealing with things lately, but knowing I have friends like you definitely helps. From watching my kids to helping out with meals, you've really gone way above and beyond the typical meaning of 'friend'. Whenever I think of all the time and effort you put in for me and my family, I'm just floored.

  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You've helped in ways I can't even express. I will never forget this!

Sincerely,”

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Dear [Friend],

  We can't thank you enough. Johnny breaking his arm was quite an ordeal for us but having your help with little Tina made it much easier. We're so glad she was spared the trauma of a scary hospital visit and seeing her brother and parents so upset. Knowing she was home with you eating a good dinner and having fun with your kids was a tremendous relief.

  Thank you for your kindness and your support during our little family emergency. We appreciate it more than you know. Now our only problem is that Johnny is jealous that Tina got a sleepover and he didn't!

Sincerely,”

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Dear Dr. [Name],

  I wanted to thank you for helping care for my mother these last few weeks. Seeing her in such a state was certainly not easy for me, but your kind, gentle, knowledgeable assistance helped me get through it.  Please know how much I appreciate your help.

Best wishes, “
