Everybody's busy with seemingly little time to attend to important, but not life pressing concerns; like writing a letter for a friend, or having a coworker/colleague write one for you. And then you never know who's going to ask you to write a letter, or when you might need one yourself. 

Templates like the one below are good for times like this, as you can spend a few minutes searching for one that closely matches what you need and within a few minutes of finding it you can personalize and be done with it; fast, simple and quick. I hope this one is helpful.

Here's a Sample Letter of Recommendation

Dear ______:

The fact that you will be leaving our firm shortly has been brought to my attention. We are very sorry to lose you inasmuch as your work has always been most satisfactory and we were hoping that you would remain with the [name of firm] for many years.

I understand that you are leaving for personal reasons that have nothing to do with this organization. I will be happy to provide you with a letter of recommendation, if you so request. You may find this helpful in securing a position with another firm in your new locale.

Please advise my secretary of your intent in this matter, so that we can have it prepared for you before your departure. I know that I speak for everyone here at [name of firm] in wishing you the very best of luck in the future.

Sincerely,
Your Name
