Dear Ms. Sommers:
Per our phone conversation, I am writing this letter to formally put in my request for an immediate family emergency leave. As you are aware, my father’s cancer situation has worsened. He relapsed with no hope for treatment six months ago. Yesterday, he was readmitted to the hospital with doctors informing us the family should all say their last goodbyes.
While the last thing I would want to do is walk off leaving my current projects in the air, everyone here knows how close I am with my father. To be honest, the idea of not being with him and my family at a time like this terrifies me.
As discussed with you and my department head, this family emergency leave letter would take effect at end of business today. I am moving forward under the idea that I will be back in the office in two weeks.
Staff has been informed of the situation. Several of my projects have already been handed off to other agents in my absence. They all have my personal contact info in case there are any questions or concerns. I will do my best to help out, responding as quickly as I can.
I want to thank everyone at Red Rock for their consideration and empathy at this most difficult time. I will be sure to pass on your sentiments and kindness to my father and family.
