Dear Sister!

Since it has been almost a year since I received the last message from you, I would like to inquire how you are doing. With us everything is on the old track and there is nothing new. Nothing is missing from the other siblings either. Hopefully you are healthy and well. Let me hear something from you again.

Best regards from all of us and congratulations on the [?] new position [/?].
