Dear Mom and Dad,

There is no branch that bears fruit by itself. I feel fortunate to have been raised by parents that were supportive of my endeavors and always provided a framework in life to learn. I’m truly grateful for your love during the ups and downs of life and hope to ‘pay it forward’ to my own children.

You’ve worked hard all of your lives, raised a family, and sent me off in the world with all the tools I could need to succeed. Now it’s your turn to stop living at work and begin working at living. Your retirement is well deserved and I’m so excited for what is next for you.

You have showed me that love it unconditional, and now I want to return the favor. As you prepare to retire and embrace a new chapter of your lives together, I want to talk to you about a few things that may not be easy to discuss, but by discussing them I believe it will make a hard subject easy.

Your retirement years should be a time to do the things you like to do, and I want to help make that happen. Let me take on some of the work like you did for me when I was young.

Words cannot express my immense gratitude for the life you gave me and your support through the years. I hope you know that I’m here for you and I want to help so I bought you a book called ‘The Fruitful Retirement’ that will help guide you during this transition and also included a checklist of items that will be beneficial.

With love and gratitude,
Your son
