    See above.

    You must start every sentence with a capital letter, end every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark and always capitalise the word "I". We don't use "to" after "cause" in this construction.

    In addition, do not put a space after opening quotation marks or before closing quotation marks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Awesome , thanks.

    If I asked you to re-write my sentence in other way, how would you do it?

    Don't put a space before a comma.

    If you asked me to rewrite your sentence, I would ask you "Why?" Regardless of your answer, I would ask you to rewrite your own sentence and we will comment on your attempt.

    Re: i"m sorry for the pain i coused to you.

    Okay,I will try, i'm looking for better and sharper sentence with more feeling in it.

    "I'm sorry for all the pain you went throw because of me."

    What do you think?

    With the correct spelling of "through", your sentence is fine. I don't think it's better or sharper than your original. In fact, your original is better. It's short and to the point and says everything it needs to.

    Re: i"m sorry for the pain i coused to you.

    The first is more direct and takes more responsibility for causing the pain; I think it's a better apology.
