Dear Sir

RE: Leave of Absence

I am writing to apologize for my leave of absence between 3 and 9 of January 2011.

I was all ready to come to work, but an urgent phone call from my mom in Phoenix stopped me at the door. She informed me of my father’s accident, and he was to be operated on that morning.

Hence, I had to rearrange my plans and drive back to my hometown immediately. My father was successfully operated but need convalescence care which my mom could not handle alone. I had to arrange the necessary home medical care for my father on her behalf. Once the arrangements were worked out, I headed home and reported to work yesterday.

I sincerely am sorry about any disruption of duties due to my short notice on my leave of absence. I did contact my superior, Mr. William Grande who was kept informed of my activities in Phoenix.

Thank you for your kind understanding of my unforeseen situation.

Yours Truly,

Randolph Munson
