Dear Jad & Nazih,

As we near the successful completion of what I hope to be the first of many projects that we will work on together, I would like to take a minute to thank you both for the wonderful effort you have put forth on this project.

I can honestly say that this has been the smoothest and most professionally handled project I have ever worked on. Your efficiency, as well as excellent attention to detail are just a few qualities that set you apart from the rest.

Once again, thank you for being a part of the project team. We look forward to working with you again.
