Dear Mrs. Carver,
I was deeply saddened to learn of Leopold's death and I would like to express my sincere sympathy to you and your family on behalf of the senior management team here at IGA. Your husband was highly respected by managers and employees alike throughout the entire company. He was regarded as a visionary leader by anyone who ever worked with him.
Leopold's contributions to this company during his 15 years of dedicated and selfless service were many and varied. He was a major part of our initial expansion across the country. Believe me, his contributions to this company will not be forgotten.
Please accept my heartfelt condolences at this difficult time and I ask you to please pass these sentiments on to your children. Leopold was a remarkable man. Knowing him personally as I did for many years, I am well aware of the difference he made in the lives of many people, both here in the company, and in his private life. Many will miss him.
With sincere sympathy,
Dear Mrs. Hamilton,
I was so sorry to hear of George’s death, and I would like to extend my deepest condolences on behalf of the entire management and staff of Micron Industries. Your husband was a respected manager and trusted employee of our company and he will be sadly missed by all of us who knew and worked with him.
George set the standard for our company. His 29 years of solid dedication to service and his devotion to ethics and integrity made him a team leader unlike any other. He was a fair and industrious manager and a man who was respected by colleagues, associates and competitors alike.
George, as you know, always played an active role in team building and social interaction within our company. He has many friends here who will miss his beach barbecues and rum punch parties.
Please accept my deepest sympathies and those of my colleagues at this sorrowful time, and pass on our sentiments to your children. Let them know their father was held in high regard by all who knew him.
CEO Micron Industries
