- Wedding: January 2016
We got a super generous wedding gift from some friends of the family who were invited to the wedding but who I haven’t really been in contact with since I was a kid (they are still in contact with my parents). Very sadly, one member of the couple has suffered terrible medical problems this year, which is why they did not come to the wedding. I want to send a thank you note that also somehow acknowledges what they are going through in a graceful way but I can’t think of the best way to word it. Also I wish that I had reached out to them before when the medical problems first happened, but I didn’t and what’s done is done…
I thought of, “I am so touched that you thought of us on our wedding during what I know has been a very difficult time for your family” … or something to that effect.
