Mr. Morris Tate
Marketing Director
Reeds Inc.
283 Teal Street
Princeton, NJ 17363

Dear Mr. Tate:

The decision to resign from my position as Marketing Manager for Reeds Inc. is perhaps the most difficult one that I have made. Unfortunately, I have no choice but to ask you to release me from my position here.

As you are aware, I was in a terrible accident last month because of which I have lost the function of my legs, due to a spinal cord injury. Upon my doctor’s initial investigation, I was given the all-clear and was expected to regain the function of my legs – a detailed check-up yesterday says that I have to undergo an advanced physical therapy program before I can walk. This information has come as a shock to me, but I am afraid that there isn’t much that I can do about it.

In accordance with my contract with Reeds Inc., I am willing to forego my salary for last month, since I cannot provide a 30 days notice of my intent to leave. I will be available over the telephone in case any information is required regarding the work that I leave behind. I would appreciate it if you would process my leaving documents as soon as possible.

I appreciate your support during this extremely trying time.
