Mrs. Cheryl Johnson, HR Manager Company Name City, State, Zip Code
I am writing to inform you that I will be taking emergency family leave immediately due to the recent heart attack of my father. I will need to assess my father’s condition and be there with my mother during this time. I am tentatively planning for a return date of a week from today, September 25, 2014. I will be in regular communication to let you know the status of my return. I have informed my clients and have arranged for a colleague to handle any emergencies while I am gone. I am confident that my clients are in good hands during my absence.
You can reach me while I am away at 000-000-0000 or email me at Sierra@Lyons.com in the event of an emergency or serious question. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your consideration during this stressful time. I hope to return to work with a clearer head and better able to concentrate on my clients once I see to the family issues at hand.
I appreciate your time and will be eagerly awaiting your response.
