There exist in this world some people who are not famous or even well known beyond their immediate circle of acquaintances, who nevertheless have a great impact on those with whom they come in contact. Mr G is such a person.
This man was a teacher. He had the ability to impart knowledge, and at the same time draw out the best in his students. Where confidence was lacking, he was able to help a child to see their own self worth, assist them in making each endeavour seem worthwhile and to want to strive to achieve a goal. Small successes became the steps which led the way to a better future. This is the person I would wish to see remembered on a stamp.
Thank you, Mr G.

I have changed 'thankyou' to the 2 word form, as that is widely used. However thankyou (1 word) is an old British English variant. It isn't incorrrect.

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

English Noun thankyou (plural thankyous)

1.Alternative spelling of thank-you.
Interjection thankyou!

1.Alternative spelling of thank you.
