Mr. Phillip Harlowe

Director of Human Resources

TransShipping, Inc.

637 Northern Blvd.

Durham, NC 27703

Dear Mr. Harlowe:

It is with deep sadness that I must inform you of my decision to resign immediately from my position as Account Manager for TransShipping, Inc. due to my failing health. At this time, it is recommended by my team of physicians that I remove myself from the workplace to better focus on regaining my health.

I’ve so enjoyed working at TransShipping, Inc., and I am deeply saddened that I will not be associated with the company in the future.

I understand that sufficient notice of my intent to leave is expected, but unfortunately, I am not well enough to complete the notice period, which is why I have requested an immediate release.

I will be available on a sporadic basis (as my pain allows) if you would like me to help train the person who will replace me. Thank you for all you’ve done to contribute to my professional growth, and please feel free to keep in touch.

Dear Mr. Robbins,

Please accept this letter as notice of my resignation due to a serious illness with which I have recently been diagnosed. My last day of employment as Floor Supervisor at Supply Master Manufacturing will be September 16, 2019.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
