Dear Donna,

I would like to personally congratulate you on your retirement from Big Company. I enjoyed working with you during your time here, and I consider you not only a valuable asset to our company, but an enjoyable presence in the office, as well.

While you will be missed by all of us at Big Company, you certainly deserve your retirement. Your hard work and diligence has greatly benefitted our company, and I hope that the remaining employees here will strive to follow your stellar example.

It has always been my pleasure to work with you. So, while I am saddened to see you go, I am confident that you will find the same success and happiness in retirement that you experienced during your time here.

I wish you the best in your future endeavors. Retirement will surely offer you many new opportunities, which I know you will embrace whole-heartedly, just as you did at Big Company.

Please keep in touch, and visit often if you find that you have the time. I hope you have a fun and fruitful retirement!

Best wishes,
