by Ridma
(Sri Lanka)

Your colleague found another job and invited you to his/her farewell party. Unfortunately, you are unable to attend it. Write a letter to him/her and say:

- Why can't you attend the party?
- Why did you enjoy working with her/him?
- Offer him/her to meet some other day.


Dear Mihiri

Firstly, I would like to thank you for inviting me to share your happiness in your great achievement and it is a great pleasure for me. Eventhough, I am very sorry to inform you that I am unable to participate your farewell party as I have to attend to a funeral of my aunt who was very closed relative of our family.Actually, I am not in amood to get a fun by participating the party.

However, I would like to say that the period which were working with you ia so memmorable for me due to several reasons. Onething is you are very knd, flexible and a trustful lady. Moreover, you are very pleasant and always tried to keep us in happy mood. I did not feel any frutration or tiredness during work with you, because of youy helpfullness and jokes.

I hope you understand and all my best wishes are with you. Perhaps we can meet next Saturday and and celebrate your farewel too.

Yours sincerely.
