Acceptance of a Resignation Letter

Dear Allan, earlier in the morning, I received your letter. I was sorry to hear that you want to leave your position as assistant manager of marketing. On behalf of management, I hereby accept your resignation with mixed feelings. Thank you for informing us one month in advance and giving us sufficient time to find a suitable replacement.

You always maintained an excellent attendance record and were blessed with exceptional work skills. Everybody enjoyed working with you due to your friendly attitude. Finding someone who exactly matches your skills will not be an easy task. It is true that the departure of a talented employee is bitter news to hear. You have spent quality time and your services will never be forgotten.  Good managers are hard to find so keep us in your mind if your new job does not match your expectations. The doors of the company are always open for you.

You have earned your name as an efficient and careful manager for the company. The company will never forget hundreds of those hours you spent working in addition to assigned duties. Your faithfulness, loyalty, and cooperation were witnessed even during the hard times of the company. Even then you stood tall and showed a great deal of commitment to the company. Your excellent strategies helped the company come out of its difficult times. We give you full credit for developing and restructuring its marketing department.

I will be honored if you ask me to write a recommendation letter for your new job. Although you are leaving this company, your services will be remembered for a long time. I really want to know the reasons behind your sudden resignation. For this purpose, I have arranged a meeting on [date]. You are expected to attend it and indicate all pitfalls you have observed.

We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
