Dear (Name),

On (Date: DD/MM/YY) when you had given your promotion party, I could not make it to the event. (Describe in your words). I know you are very hurt because of me as you were expecting me to come under any circumstances. I am incredibly sorry for not coming to your party. (Explain the actual problem and situation). I almost got ready and was coming for the party but suddenly my mother got some pain in her stomach, and I had to rush her to the hospital because there was no one else who could take care of her at that time. (Describe all about the situation and apology).

To give an excuse is very easy but mine is a true exception because it was an issue of my mom’s health, so it’s my humble request to you that please accept my sincerest apology. (Cordially describe your apology and greetings).

For a special person like you, only a sorry letter is not enough. Therefore, I am sending you your favorite flowers along with my best wishes.

Yours truly,
