This letter format is used by a very emotional daughter writing to her parents, as she prepares to leave the family home for the first time, to go further afield to further her studies. She writes a very emotional thank you for all they have done for her during all the years she has lived with them, and they have been there for her.

Dear Mum and dad,
I am writing this letter to you both, to bid you a fondest of farewells as I fly the nest to start my college studies. I know we have already said our goodbyes, but I want to write this letter to you, for you to keep.
Thank you so much for doing such a good job in preparing me for the future, in nurturing me, and shaping me for the outside world. You guidance has been more important than you realize.
I am so happy that you support my decision to pursue my education by going on to do further education at college. This is all a little scary for me, but iIwill always have with me all that you have taught me to give me a helping hand wherever I may go.
Your loving daughter
