Dear Senator Kennedy,
I am writing today to tell you how much I appreciate all you have done and continue to do for everyone in America. I know this letter is way over due, and I apology for that. In fact, I owe you several thank-you letters.
One thank-you is for your work on Medicare, which is now paying for my doctors and meds. Another would be on Civil Rights; we now have President Obama in the Whitehouse. Because of your stand on the minimum wages, my young granddaughter brings home a bigger paycheck. I could fill pages with thanks.
The nation is talking nonstop about Health Care Reform. You sir, worked tirelessly for it; it is my hope and prayer that your work is fulfilled as soon as possible. Yesterday as I watched the news and tributes to you, I was watching 77 years of American history. The Kennedy family helped shape the USA in so many positive ways, the nation is grateful. At least I know I am.
Sincerely and Tearfully,
