Dear Austin Parker,,
Some good things must come to an end, they say. As much as I want to renew the contract for your cleaning service, I have to let go of your outstanding help.
My daughters are now old enough to fend for themselves, and I need to teach them the value of being organized, independent, and self reliant. These they can achieve by learning to clean and organize their own homes.
I am enclosing your final payment and a little extra as my way of saying thank you for your dedication.
I have also given your name to my colleagues. Definitely, they will be delighted to benefit from your work.
