Dear Ryan —

It’s been a wonderful journey working together. I remember coming into the office and seeing the team for the first time. I was immediately impressed with the level of work you were doing. Getting the opportunity to get employed by you has been a blessing. I’ve learned so many things from yourself and the rest of the team.

While it’s been a difficult decision, I’ve decided it’s best for me to move onto the next opportunity.

I would love to work with you and the rest of the team at some point in the future, if that opportunity ever arises again.

My final date of employment will be May 1st, 2015 as agreed upon in our meeting on April 15th, 2015.

If there is any way I can be of assistance in training my replacement, please let me know.

Thank you so much,
