Dear parents,
It has been almost seven years when I last saw mother in Shanghai. I miss you very much. As you know, I am graduating from the State University of New York at Albany this May. I would like to invite you to attend my graduation ceremony.
Of course, I understand that father is always busy with his teaching and research duties. If he can not find the time, then I wish at least mother can come to Albany for a short stay. I would like to go sightseeing with her.
In this letter I have enclosed my bank statement and a status letter from my school to confirm my enrollment here at University at Albany. Please present these documents to the U.S. consulate.
I look forward to hearing from you.


Eric Tang
