Personal Letter Greeting

If appropriate, the greeting might be informal or formal, beginning with “dear” and the recipient’s given name or connection. (Occasionally, exclamation points are used at the conclusion of highly personal greetings to emphasize.) Here’s an example of a personal letter greeting. 

Dear Aunt {Name},

It’s been so long since we’ve seen each other and I’m excited to catch up soon. How have you been? I hope that this letter finds you in good health and spirits. 

Warmest regards, 

Yours truly, 

{Your Name}
