Look forward – to what?

 
I am often given emails or letters to correct or look over before they are sent out.  One of the key phrases to ending an email or letter starts with the words:
I look forward to…..
Many people make the mistake of using an infinitive of the verb at this point.  The way the sentence should continue is in the gerund, verb+ing.  This means you could finish your email by saying:

  I look forward to hearing from you…, seeing you on…, receiving your order……  

Remember:  look forward to + verb+ing
