Regardless of technological advances in communication, it is best to be traditional when it comes to correspondence. There are times when handwritten correspondence is truly the only socially acceptable option. Whether you are expressing your heartfelt sympathy or gratitude, personalization and effort is proper. Nothing shows appreciation like taking the time to write your thanks. A handwritten thank you is a classic and timeless testament of the careful consideration of the sender.
“To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.” Phyllis Theroux
