A/N: What do you know? I found time to post more! Yay! I probably won't be able to post again until Monday though. Thanks to everyone who has continued to review!
Professor Dumbledore,

You’ve told me to call you Albus about a million times by now, but I can’t seem to get that through my head. I can’t just change my way of thinking. I’ve called you Professor for too long now and I have too much respect for you to call you by your first name.

Anyway, Professor Dumbledore, I am writing this to thank you for everything you have done for me and my family in the past. Despite all of the disciplining you were forced to give me during my school days, you have become sort of a surrogate father for me. I look up to you, I trust you with the lives of myself and my family, and I regard you as the greatest wizard of our time.

I cannot begin to tell you how much your guidance has meant to me through the years. I really don’t think I could have matured as much as I did if it had not been for your teaching me. You calmed my spirit. In some ways, I believe you are responsible for my finding Lily and now having Harry in my life. Without your help, I honestly don’t think I could have settled down.

I know that during my stay at Hogwarts, we (Sirius, Remus, Peter, and I) caused you a lot of trouble and I’m sorry for that. Do I regret it? No. I’m just sorry. We were kids. It was fun. You can’t blame a guy for having a little bit of fun, can you? Thank you for never throwing any of us out. I don’t know what I would have done if any of my friends had been kicked out of Hogwarts. If I had been kicked out I know I would have been dead. My parents would have killed me. So, I guess you really saved my life.

You have done so much for my family and I that I don’t know if I could ever repay you. Not just for my immediate family, either, but for my extended family as well. As I said before, you never kicked my friends out of school. The fact that you even let Remus into the school with his condition is amazing. I thank you for that. I never would have gotten the chance to know him if it were not for that.

Of course you have always put your own life on the line to save my wife, my son, and I. You warned us of the impending danger that our family is facing and instantly offered to help protect us. There isn’t a way that I can express my gratitude. You saved our lives. Thank you.

I thank you, Professor, with all of my heart for everything you have ever done for me. You have impacted my life in such a way that it can never be forgotten or replaced. I trust you with my life and with the lives of Lily and Harry. In fact, I do owe you my life. If there is anything that I can ever do for you, let me know. I will do it in a heartbeat, no matter what it is. It has been truly an honor to know you, to work with you, and to admire you. I can never thank you enough.

Your loyal friend,
James Potter
