To Jamie

Dear Jamie,

Thank you for your wonderful birthday card. It is beautiful! 🙂
I am sorry that I am unable to send a thank you letter back to you. I couldn’t find the return address printed on your envelope. I appreciate your time and effort for sending this very special birthday card to me.

This season is going to be very tough for me. 🙂 Though, I will always do my very best. Thank you!

-Karen Chen 🙂
