Bryce Gould

President, Hallaway Industries

New Parkland, CA, 91010

Dear Mr. Gould,

Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from Hallaway Industries. With the recent passing of my wife, I find it absolutely impossible to focus on the tasks that the company requires of me. While I would love to continue to serve the company in any capacity possible, I also realize that my emotional state makes my continued employment impossible.

I will be transferring my considerable retirement account to another account where I can access the money. I will contact human resources to make all of those arrangements. As much as I find it impossible to focus on my duties, I will be more than happy to stay on for the customary two weeks prior to my departure. I can help train a new logistics manager and make the transition as smooth as possible.

I cannot thank you and the company enough for the outpouring of support I have received. While the positive feelings from my colleagues warms my heart, they cannot fill the void that is in my heart. If you need to contact me, please feel free to call me at 555-232-3223 or email me at

Sincerely Yours,

Philip J. Atherton
