Dear (Mr/Mrs + name),
I am writing on behalf of your (Marketing) department, where you have been an indispensable and integral part of the company for the last (20) years, to congratulate you and wish you all the very best for your well earned retirement.
Your commitment to bring success and growth to (name of company) through progressively and patiently working your way up from your position as (assistant X) (20) years ago to (name: Vice President of Marketing etc.) today has earned you respect and admiration among your fellow co-workers.
You have seen employees come and go over your continuous dedication to your job with us but you have always remained the stable, grounding point for all those that have proudly worked underneath you. Your vast knowledge and extensive industry experience has been a strong leading force for your team who have learned invaluable lessons with you over the years.
You will be sincerely missed and difficult to replace. We are sad to see you go but also extremely happy to see you be able to start your retired life knowing you have earned and deserve every moment of your new path in life.
We all would like to see you off with a big celebration and well wishes and have organised a celebration dinner and drinks on (date) in your honour.
We are looking forward to seeing you there with your family,
