Dear Dad and Mum,
Probably one of the most unfortunate things in a "Bloke's Life" is that it takes over 30 years to realize how essential you have been to build my character, my ethics and, most importantly, my happiness.

For the rest of my life I will reflect on the unbelievably GREAT times we've shared and will continue to share. You're my best friends!"
