Sorry letter, Sample & Format
‘To err is human’ is a very famous proverb that we all are aware if. Each and every one of us commits errors from time to time and that is normal. What matters is that we accept our mistakes and correct them. Learning from your mistakes and not repeating them is what makes an ordinary person extraordinary. The way we behave and our actions may sometimes hurt other people or cause discomfort to them. Hence, it is our responsibility that once we realize it we convey our apology to them.
A Sorry letter can be written by just about anyone to another. It can be a formal letter between companies or an informal letter between individuals. A sorry letter usually expresses regret over an issue with a possibility of making restitution. A sorry letter is a good way to mend any broken relationship if a proper explanation is given. Forgiveness is one of the noblest act. Hence, when you are forgiven, it is your turn to prove that you will never do the same mistake again. Depending on the nature of the apology letter, the length may vary. It can either be short and precise, or elaborative.
The following is a sample of a sorry letter.

Subject: Apology letter
Dear Ms Colt,
I am writing to apologise for causing you great inconveniences with the recent accident where my car knocked into your recently new car. With your kids on board, I am sure you must have been taken aback. I was sending my car to the workshop for some repairs when the accident happened. I know giving excuses is not acceptable at all.
I am grateful to God that you and your kids were unhurt; otherwise, I would feel even more terrible over the incident. I cannot express how ashamed I am about what happened. I promise to be careful in the future.
As mentioned, I would bear the cost of your car repairs if you can put it at my mechanic’s workshop in the next few days. I will have my mechanic waiting for you and to put your car on top priority as I understand that you need your car for transporting your schooling children.
Again, I am so sorry to have caused you much inconvenience.
Thank you for your patience.
