Sample Farewell Letter to Friend

[A farewell letter to a friend must be written with feeling. Letters of this nature cannot be too brief or too formal. This is due to the fact that the letter is being sent to and from people who have known each other for a long time and are saddened to see each other go. It must have an emotive tone, or if not, a friendly tone. The parting letter should say the person farewell and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. Here are some ideas for writing a farewell letter to a buddy who is departing your city, college, or office.]

It’s rather unbelievable that you’re leaving already. (Describe in your words). I can’t even bring myself to compose this letter. (Express your feelings). I’ll miss the fun we had so much.

I’m rather sad as I write this, knowing how you will soon be leaving for (City Name). (Describe in your words). I cannot believe it’s been three years already, and it’s once again time for your dad to get transferred. (Express your feelings). I hope you’re making 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! (Remind your childhood memories). Remember the time we attended the rally on students for environmental conservation? (You’re spending time with friends). 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? (Express your emotions). 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. (Greetings and wishes). Do take care of yourself, and write to me as soon as possible.

I’ll be waiting!

I’ll miss you.
