People Just Don't Write Thank-You's Quite Like They Used To...
August 22, 1978
8:51:35 I assume this was the exact time...
My Dearest Uncle James Albert Ramseyer and Family,
It is my wish to in some small way convey my deepest appreciation for the many kindnesses bestowed upon me. It has recently dawned upon my realization what great effort was put forth by you and other members of your wonderful family during my perfectly lovely stay. Words fail to express my deepest joy at being able to spend a week at your place of abode. I was perfectly enraptured, enchanted, encharmed. I wish I knew "encharmed" was a word, I would have been using it more frequently.
Since my delectable stay it has been made known that my dearest cousin Debra has fallen in to misfortune. Deb busted her leg on that fated skateboard and needed surgery. My mind fails to find words to express my heart felt sympathy. It is my deep wish and fond expectation to find her healthy and hole not a misprint upon our reunion.
I wish to express my unbounded gratitude for the effort of you and Clifford Jones to bring about a most delightful fishing excursion. Please extend my gratitude to him.
Your Sincerest Nephew and cuz
Lovingly Gotta love the second farewell
Paul Alan Getz
I mean, what a great thank you note! It doesn't get much better than that!
