Farewell Letters

Farewell letters are letters we write to express good wishes when parting with loved ones. A farewell letter is the best means to thank people for the time you spent together. Maybe you have accepted a new job offer, you are retiring, or going back to school. Perhaps you are moving to another country for good. The best and most convenient way to say goodbye to your friends, neighbors, and coworkers is by sending a farewell letter. While you may deliver the news face-to-face, sending a farewell letter makes sure that everyone knows the news. It is the perfect place to share contact information so that people can still keep in touch with you.

Great farewell letters are brief and precise. Clearly state the reason why you are writing the letter. Begin by confirming your departure and depending on the circumstance, explain how you feel about making this difficult decision. Say thanks for the time spent with the recipient, his/her friendship, love, support, etc. Mention some of the good times and memories you have shared. Wish the recipient the best in his/her future. End with a positive or humorous note making a clear invitation to continued communication.
