Dear Linda,
This was a mail a Banker circulated during his or her resignation after spending 12 good years as a banker, yet we won't allow our First Lady to rest.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I would like to inform you that I will be leaving First Bank effective May 30,2014 and today is my last day working with this great organization.

These past 12years have been very rewarding and I would like take this opportunity to thank you very much to all for a wonderful working relationship as well as friendship that have been developed over the years we have worked together and known each other. In a way or two I have experienced your kindness, therefore, please let me express my gratitude to every one of you. Your guidance, support, encouragement and comfort, moreover friendship, have kept me strong all these years.

As human being many thing can happen enduring we worked together; understanding or mis- understanding, differences and similarity, pleasant and sadden, that can happen to every people during working for similar goals, sometimes could touch. So please kindly accept my apologies for any mistakes or hard feelings that may have happened during these times.

I will always remember and treasure the time we have been allowed to share together for the past 12years, and it has been good fortune to collaborate closely with many of you. I wish you all good luck in all your endeavors and hopefully our path will cross again in the future.

It saddened me to leave behind good friends in first bank; however I wish that our friendship and contact would still remain. You have all become a part of me and I'm very grateful for that.
