Hello all, thank you for your suggestions for my cover letter. I have made some changes and would like your opinion, below is my revised cover letter:)

Also since i feel as though we have a sufficent amount of evidance and since Id like to put this in the mail this week, ive decided to only include my dads affidavit(which will be notarized) instead of both a affidavit from my dad(who we live with) and one from our friend.I still have alot of organizing to do for our packet and think it would be a hassel to set up a second meeting with a notary to sign my friends as well.

Im just wondering if only sending one affidavit is enough?
