Dear [Recipients Name],
It's time to say goodbye. And I cannot express how happy I am to do so.
While I know how you have been waiting for me to go, I am not leaving you yet. You guys have tried me to an extent and now with me gone, I will make sure you never forget me. I have deleted all your files from the server.
If you have fallen off your chair, know that I am joking. I will surely miss you, fellows. We have had a great time together, and I hope to catch up on our daily gossip like every other day. Miss me.

Funny farewell letter to colleagues.
Further things to consider when writing farewell letters to colleagues
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.
Letters to Colleagues
Letters to colleagues are, simply, letters written to coworkers. These letters are written in a business or professional setting for different purposes. Maybe you want to thank a coworker for doing you a favor - write a thank-you letter. You want to congratulate him/her for a promotion - write a congratulation letter. Perhaps you want to apologize for doing something wrong - write an apology letter, or may be you have found a new job, and it's time to say goodbye - write a farewell letter. Although some colleagues may find writing letters a tedious process, it is a great way to maintain a strong working relationship.
Most letters to colleagues are informal. You really don't need to use all that formal jargon to people you know pretty well ? do you? Begin your letter with a warm and friendly salutation and the proper name of the recipient. Clearly state the purpose of your letter. Be specific and know exactly what you are talking about. Use clear language which the recipient can easily understand. Maintain a friendly and pleasant tone. Close the letter positively and with a note of anticipation that the recipient will take the necessary action.
