   Character Reference for a Relative

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing with regard to my {cousin, niece, nephew, etc.}, {Name}, who is applying {to a job, to a college, etc.}.

You may at first want to discount a character reference letter that comes from a relative. After all, aren't relatives obligated to like one another? But let me just say that I have many relatives, and though I am, in fact, required to like them, it's quite another thing to sit down and write a letter for them. For {Name}, I am willing to do just that.

{Name} is a person of good moral character, who has a great deal of integrity and a strong work ethic. I have always been impressed with the way{he/she} handles {himself/herself}, as {he/she} has always seemed so much more mature than {his/her} peers.

It is, to be honest, truly a pleasure to know {Name}, and I know that we would be friends even if we weren't related. I hope I have helped you to see the kind of person {he/she} is.
