Russell Owens Manager 100 Broadway Lane New Parkland, CA, 91010 Cell: (555) 987-1234 firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Mr. Owens,
I would like to formally request two weeks of leave to help arrange for the proper care of my mother who will be coming to live with my family in October. I would like my leave to begin on September 15, 2014 and run until September 29, 2014. This would be the only time off I have taken this year and I think you will agree that I have been a very reliable employee.
You and I have discussed the need for me to bring my mother to my family home to care for her. This will be a permanent arrangement, but I will only need these two weeks off to prepare for her arrival.
If you need to discuss any further details regarding this situation, please feel free to call me at (555) 674-3739, or you can email me at email@example.com. I would request that you issue your response as soon as possible so that I can begin making preliminary plans to remodel my home in anticipation of my mother’s arrival. I thank you in advance for your consideration and look forward to your positive response.
