Dear [Recipients Name],

I am writing this letter is to thank you for the support you gave my family and me when I lost my father.

We appreciated your kind gesture of taking care of the kids and handling matters catering during that time. Your words of support and encouragement also went a long way in helping us go through those difficult moments.

A friend in need is truly a friend indeed. I am thankful for you and for always being there for me. God bless you.
