Dear Friends and Colleagues

RE: Farewell

It is time to bid farewell to you all. After 35 years of work, the time has come for me to take life easy after tomorrow while all of you slog away.

I just want to express my thanks to each of you who have been such a great support to me during my work tenure at Auto Motor. I shall remember all of you well and the good times we shared; of course, the bad times must be forgotten and let bygones be bygones.

Do find time to have a drink with me whenever you are free. I shall miss you all as friends but I do look forward to my retirement as I have plans. Do visit me for a chat when you can. I wish you well and all the best in your future undertakings.

Your good friend and colleague,

Henry Gillespie
