"As we look back, and taking this opportunity to thank you for your neutral support and guidance, we realise and are appreciative that we are thanking you as a family.  We all thank you that our extended family stays strong and includes not only Kim and I as a couple - but our wonderful son and daughter. Your honesty, your ability to make us see and understand the other persons point of view and accept, even embrace each other's perceived failings, has allowed us to see that life's problems are in most cases workable and not insurmountable"
