I've often thought about writing a note like this over the years. I just want to let you know what a normal post-divorce life [my ex wife] and I have managed to achieve.

Of course that's mostly due to me, partly due to [her]. But I'm firmly convinced that we would have never reached this place without the foundation you helped forge.

[My daughter] is almost 14 now, and we have a great relationship. But if there were just a few different twists and turns over 2005 we might have no relationship at all.
