Klingon thank-you note

I was just gifted a Klingon dictionary and would like to write a very brief thank-you note for it in Klingon. I found some vocabulary, but I can't possibly learn grammar and syntax and still get the note out in a timely fashion. My best guess is:

Qatlho'(-meh?) tlhingon mu'ghom.

As far as an opening, I've only found 'nuqneH', but since I'm the one with something to say, it doesn't really make sense. Isn't there any opener like 'I have something to tell you' or 'attention'?

I'm getting a complete blank as to closings.
