Mr. Julian Treble

Human Resource Manager

Curtain Fall Security Services

2938 Orange Ave

Nantucket, MA 02582

Dear Mr. Treble:

I am writing this letter to inform you of my decision to resign from my position as a security guard for Curtain Fall Security Services. In keeping with the terms of my contract, please consider this as a two weeks’ notice of my intention to leave. November 16 will be my last working day.

I cannot write the words that will explain how grateful I am for the experience that you have provided to me over the 15 years. However, due to my dwindling health, I can no longer meet the demands of this very challenging job. A security guard has to be alert and on his feet at all times, both of which I am finding quite difficult to do.

I find myself hoping that I have returned the favor somewhat. I will be in touch with you regarding my resignation documents and financial settlements soon and to discuss if there is anything that you would like me to do in order to help you train my replacement.
