Letter for loss of former employer

by Maria

I wrote this letter of condolence when my first boss died and I wanted to express my sympathy to her surviving daughter.


Dear Candy,

I am so sorry to hear about the death of your mother. She was my first employer and I remember hearing that you had recommended me for the job.

What I remember most about your mom was how tough she was. She was not afraid to tell a customer to treat us kindly and she was not afraid to drive to someone's home and bring them to work if they were needed. From all I have heard she faced her battle with cancer with that same sort of determination to deal with whatever came along.

I have so many fond memories of working at the cleaners and your mom and dad taught me a lot about responsibility and hard work. They did a wonderful job with you and I know your mom is so happy to know that you have given her such a beautiful grandchild.

Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
