Retirement Goodbye Letter

Subject: Retirement Announcement Letter


Respected All,

As you all are aware, my daughter will soon be starting college at Harvard University in the United States of America. Given this enormous opportunity, my wife and I have decided to shift to Boston with her to support her and help with her studies. For this very reason, I will be taking an early retirement.

Yes, it may come as a surprise to you, but I feel I have achieved more than enough in my 58 years and would now like to settle down and enjoy life. As they all very popularly say, retirement is, after all, a second childhood. But more than anything I would like to thank you all for making not only my time but work here beyond special.

Given my age and position, one would label me as the teacher or mentor. However, in reality, I have learned a lot more from every one of you in the past 30 years than I could have ever imagined. Even the young ones that we senior members like to refer to as puppies have helped in this journey. You have kept me on my toes but most importantly, helped me evolve and keep up with the changing times.

The bucket full of memories made only make this a harder goodbye. However, I will keep visiting and promise to keep in touch with all.

Thank you

Raymond Tusk
