Want to simply say thank you to a friend

Hebrew translation:see text
Explanation:
If you are addressing a man, you should say:
Toda lecha, haver

If you are addressing a woman, you should say:
Toda lach, havera

However, it sounds more natural if you omit the term "friend" and just say "toda lecha" o "toda lach"
