Dear Mauro

RE: My Deepest Sympathy

Please allow me to convey my deepest sympathy on the loss of your job last week. I heard about your retrenchment from your company from Jacky, our old classmate whom I bumped into 2 days ago. It is indeed shocking news that such an established company like Trans-Met should be caught up in a bad financial situation.

But in this ailing economy, anything is possible. No employee is shielded from recession consequences. I was in the same boat as you 2 years ago. I am sure that you will be able to find employment again very quickly with your impressive credentials.

Please let me know if I can be of help to you at this time of shock and anxiety. Stay strong and calm, my friend.

Yours truly,
