Dear HENNERY SMITH,
It is with a heavy heart that I am resigning from my post as the sales department head. My job means a lot to me, and I have come to think of my colleagues as a second family. However, recent events in my family has made me come to the decision that it would be best for me to stay at home and give my wife the support she needs in one of the toughest times in our lives.
I am really thankful for everything the company has given me, and I will always be grateful for everything I have learned throughout my stay in the company.
I thank you for offering me the option to return to the company as soon as I feel that I am able to do so again. I really hold this offer in high regard and in gratitude as well. Thank you.
