Dear [Recipients Name],

I have always taken great enjoyment in reading your local column. It has proved to be both informative and humorous at the same time, and many of the family issues are relevant to my personal life. It is good to know that others face the same issues that we do, and also that there are some common solutions to these matters.

Many thanks for your columns and I hope that they continue for many years to come.
