As you know, I have served this company for 35 years, and it is time for me to retire. I have had the privilege of growing with this esteemed organization from a mere store assistant to my current position of Vice President. Hard work paid off for me, but it can also do the same for you.
My last day at this company is DD/MM/YYYY; I shall miss all of you greatly as I have had the joy of knowing and even mentoring many of you. I am proud to see many of you progressing well here.
I wish to thank each of you for your strong support during my tenure, and I am pleased to call all of you friends and not just colleagues. It would be my pleasure to have you contact me during my retirement.
I wish each of you the best in your future undertakings here.
All the best and with my kind regards,
