Your child's thanks for not only bringing them up and giving them everything they will ever need. doing their homework throughout their educational periods, for solving their ongoing everyday problems on an ongoing basis, taking their constant abuse and criticism once they leave home as they now know everything about life and then letting them move back in, each time they constantly fail in their miserable lives in the real world and then it starts all over again and even then they won't do any chores around the house, like taking out the garbage to the garage, never mind the curb or even stepping into the garage to throw their recycles into the right bin, washing their own clothes, making their own meals and the list goes on from there but I am sure they will be there and on time when the lawyer reads out wills and be wearing brand new clothes that we weren't available to buy them fortunately!
" prepaid for by us in the obituaries or there would have been nothing done!" In appreciation of their lives on this earth I would like to thank Mom and Dad for what they have done for us and we hate you for leaving us so soon. - Your Children

an overwhelming feeling of gratitude - for example when someone uber generously gives you some music off their ipod.. and a fair bit resultant love goes into that word too.
The appreciativeness I feel right now is unreal - my ipod's got new va-va as my Romeo gave me some new music - and new life.
