The time has come for me to leave J.K. Smith & Co. I will be leaving the Company at the end of July after 25 happy years
I would like to sincerely thank you all for the enjoyable working relationship and wish you well for the future.
Thank you kindly for the retirement party and gifts and I shall certainly think of you all everytime I play golf!
Keep in touch.
Dear Mr Jones,
I am writing to thank you and all the staff at Harvey Smith & Co. for the party you held in my honour last week, and also for the beautiful watch you presented me as a leaving gift.
As I said in my speech, I've really enjoyed my fifteen years with the Company. It has been a fantastic place to work and I enjoyed being part of such a dedicated team. I certainly won't miss getting up so early in the morning but I will miss being part of the team.
I look forward to seeing you all again sometime in the near future, perhaps for a round of golf or a wee drink.
Thanks again for a most enjoyable evening.
I would like to inform you that I will be retiring from my position with J.K. Smith & Co as of the end of July.
I would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for the professional working relationship we have enjoyed over the last five years.
I am looking forward to my retirement but will sorely miss working with you all. If I can be of any assistance during the next few weeks please don't hesitate to contact me.
Congratulations on your retirement!
Twenty five years have passed and now it's time for you to enjoy the next chapter in your life.
We would like to thank for your continuous hard work over the years, your loyalty to the Company and the professional working relationship we have had.
You will be sorely missed and we wish you a long, happy and healthy retirement.
