    CA 08059

    Dear Father,

    You are aware about the fact that my school studies are over at Lincoln School and I have obtained admission at Stocks College. I shall be leaving in a few days for a period of two years.

    But before that, I want to say many things that I have been feeling for you over the years. Throughout this letter, I want to tell you that I love you very much and without your help and support I could not have been able to get success in my student life.

    You are the most loving and caring father in the world and I am nothing without you. It is very hard for me to leave you but I have to complete my higher studies at Stocks College. You also want me to complete my education. I shall remain in contact and will be back as soon as I complete my education.

    Your loving son,

    Sam Michael
