A goodbye letter can be written to anyone and as the name suggest that it is written before or while someone is leaving. It is written to people who are close to you. It is not a formal letter, but a format has to be followed while writing the letter. Mention the date while writing the letter and address the person well. While writing the letter, it is important to mention the reason why you are leaving and whether or not you will be back.
The letter does not have a very happy tone because of the departure of the individual. Down below is an example of the goodbye letter, you may take a look. The content or reason of the goodbye may vary from person to person, and so you may alter the content as your requirements. Close the letter while saying that you will miss the person or the people. Also, that you will keep in touch with them.

Subject: Goodbye Letter
Dear Mara L. Ramirez,
Hello. I am writing to you to tell you that I am soon leaving the city and shifting to Netherlands with my family. We have been neighbours since YYYY that was the time when I was studying in college. You, ma’am, have been like a mother to me and a grandmother to my child. You took care of my health when I was ill while Daisy was out of town. Needless to say, you have been like a family to us so have we been to you. With all the celebrations and festivals we have celebrated together. I am not at all pleased to inform you that I will no longer be your neighbour and we will not be able to share the amazing moments now. My company has shifted me to Netherlands for next 5 years or maybe even more. Even though I have been offered a raise to go there and I am not very happy about leaving you. I would want to take you and Matt out for dinner before I leave.
Say bye to John from my side and wish him luck for his graduation and the new opportunities in life. I will miss all of you and will be in touch you. Lots of love.
Charles K. Raymond
