What do I include in a fax cover sheet when faxing a cover letter/resume?

I manipulated a Microsoft Word template to include the following:

FAX (in large bold print – is this really necessary it is part of the template?)

Left side of table:
To: (their name)
Fax: (their fax number)
Re: (name of open position)
Pages: (don’t worry I counted the cover sheet)

Right side of table (so my name is across from the “To: name”)
From: (Me)
Phone: (my phone)
Date: (the date, duh)

I deleted the comments part, do I need to include that? If so what do I write in there???

    Create your own letter head centered on the top of the page -

    Your name
    Street address
    Telephone #
    E-mail address

    Via: Facsmile (enter fax #)


    Dear (Mr. or Mrs. last name). If you don’t know who it should go to address it to “Whom it May Concern”:
