Farewell Letter to a Friend

A farewell letter to a friend has to have an emotional tone. This is because the letter that’s being sent is written to and from people who have known each other very well previously and sad to see one another go. Letters of farewell written to friends must be reminiscent of memories and must have plenty of references of events in the past as well as plans for the future. A farewell letter to a friend cannot be very short or too formal. It has to have a certain emotional tone to it, or if not that then at least a warm tone of friendship. The farewell letter should bid goodbye to the person and wish him all the best for his future life.

 

  • Since the receiver of the letter is someone you know well, make sure that your letter is a well-written and well-meaning one. Make sure to make your content meaningful, genuine and authentic.
  • Always reminisce about the past and praise your friend’s prior achievements. Then wish him/her all the best for whatever future achievements he/she might be aiming or hoping to make. This will make your friend feel slightly better about leaving or going away.
  • Always inquire about your friend’s family, their health and wellbeing. Extend your good wishes to them as well. Make sure you mention your friend’s siblings if he/she has any. Also mention the friend’s friends, if possible and if you knew them.
  • Never make the letter too sad or emotional. If you know your friend is sad about leaving, try to make the letter as cheerful as possible. Mention how this change might bring about a better change or progress in your friend’s life.
  • Make sure the letter is emotional, but don’t make it too emotional. Try also to be slightly practical and well-meaning, concise and to-the-point.

Hi!

I’m rather sad as I write this, knowing how you will soon be leaving for Delhi. I cannot believe it’s been three years already and it’s once again time for your dad to get transferred. I hope you’re taking the transition well. It’s only too well-known for you, I reckon.

I’ll sure miss all the times I spent with you, though. And the fun we had—we had such fun! Remember the time we attended the rally on students’ for environmental conservation? And nobody had their costumes or posters with them and we had to rush around making them and screaming at the shopkeepers for more sticky tape? It was such a riot! And how about the time we missed that test together and spent like an hour brainstorming about which alibi to use? That was too funny for words!

Give my love to your parents. Tell Sam I wished him all the best. Do take care of yourself, and write to me as soon as possible. I’ll be waiting!

 

Love,

XYZ

Dear Susan,

Today being the last day in this organization reminds me the times we spent together having fun and working for this company. It was really very pleasant sharing your company and lovely to have a friend like you.

I will really miss all your support and your intellectual skills to do up with all the work. No one will take your place any where I go but will try to find some one like you to be your replacement. My telephone number remains the same and will definitely keep in touch with you. You do keep coming to my residence when ever you feel like.

We will try and patch up at least once in a month at our favorite coffee shop or our regular restaurant.

Please do keep in touch.

Regards,

Billie Odom.
