I found the idiosyncratic use of a semicolon in the salutation to be a bit too peculiar to ignore. Maybe this is a common thing in Anglophonic countries, however I've never seen a semicolon used in this way. Online language and grammar sources[1] seem to indicate that this is incorrect. I think it's a bit too much of a coincidence that both his wife and the writer of the 'tips' used this incorrectly in the same way.
