Subject:  Thank you

Hi Lucas,

I just want to express my note of thanks to you for your assistance last Friday when my car tire went flat on the highway. I am so glad that you stopped to help me even though you did not know me. I did not have the necessary tools to change my flat. I have always been a little unknown to handling such situations and it was a great blessing for you to be passing by from the same route and being so kind enough to help me.

If not for your help, I would have to call the toll truck and spend a bundle for the professional service. I am glad I made a new friend who is a Good Samaritan. I am indebted to you. I was on my way for an important meeting. With your help, I managed to reach my appointment with 5 minutes to spare!

I could not find the time to thank you then but I would definitely like to get in touch with you now and express my gratitude for such kind behavior of yours. I would like to treat you to a nice meal as a way of saying thank you and hope to get to know you better. It would be my honor to have a friend like you. Let me know when you are free.

My contact details are attached along with this email, so feel free to call me up.

Thanks again!

Yours truly,
