How would you translate 'grateful' into french? I've found 'reconnaissant', but that doesn't seem to convey the exact feeling.
When we left France our buyers agreed to take on our Kat and poultry. Which was a big relief as they wouldn't have survived here, and we didn't want to kill them.
The lady - french- sends regular updates and is quite apologetic if anything goes wrong with them. Today she posts that the favourite cockerel has been killed by a dog.
I want to reply and say no need to apologise, we're only too grateful that you agreed to take them on.
She writes partly in french, partly in english.
