Today is the last day for a guy who works at my company. I thought he was fired a couple of weeks ago, but since he sent out this gushing letter I guess he wasn’t. But I have a feeling the parting was very mutual. I would guess he made about $70,000 a year, but I’m not sure.
As some of you may know, today, Friday, June 27, is my last day with ____, and since it is, I wanted to take a moment to send a "good-bye" message to each of you.
I also wanted to say that I have truly valued, and will hopefully have the opportunity to continue into the future, both short, and long term, to treasure the special friendships that I have been fortunate enough to cultivate lo these many years (it would have been five on 8/26/03) at ____, and to tell you one more time what a great group of people you are. To those of you whom I have been able to have a "special friendship" with (and you know who you are), I want to say a special thank you to you, as you have only served to increase the very positive experience I have had with ____, and for that I am very grateful.
I plan to try to get around to say a personal good-bye to each of you, and if so, I hope it can be a happy moment, nothing maudlin, as life goes on, and hopefully, the future will hold nothing but unlimited success for each of you (and me, too!); finally, if you pass me in the hall, say good-bye!
In closing I want to thank the management of ____ for the opportunities they have afforded me, especially ____ (in absentia), ____, and ____ for their support in initially getting me through the door, as well, ____ for his enlightened leadership, and ____ for his vision for ____, you all seem to be on the right track, and I hope you all fully realize the dreams each of you have for the company.
For those of you that I have had the pleasure of directing/managing, a special thanks to each for your efforts, for you made me look better than I was, and your continued dedication to the task at hand is what will continue to make ____ a great company to work for.
Oh well, this is longer than I had planned, so I shall say good-bye (one more time), as well as to wish each of you, the hope that you find the happiness you seek in your lives.
