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.

Dear Mr. Comer,

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time of employment at Internal Structures, Inc as a professional security officer, but must provide notice of my resignation to be effective on January 20. I am leaving to make a career change and to pursue dreams I had shelved out of fear of the unknown. Through consistent and reliable employment, Internal Structures has afforded me the chance to take that step.

As my supervisor, I thank you for all you did for me within this company and as part of my employment. Please ensure my coworkers are aware that I valued the teamwork, professionalism, and kindness of the entire department. I will miss each of you as I move on.

I know the department is well cross-trained regarding each role and job duties. But, I want to make myself fully available in case of any questions or problems. You can reach me at or 555-225-6543. I welcome hearing from you anytime!
