Dear Alfred:

This is to advise you that I have accepted the position of Marketing Manager, with Gandolfo Networks Inc., based in Buffalo New York. Accordingly, please regard this as my official letter of resignation.

My last day of work here will be June 28, 2003. This will give me three full weeks from next Monday to complete the current marketing program design that I have recently been putting the finishing touches on. In addition, during this period I will be able to bring both you, and my deputy Aaron Roach, up-to-speed on all of the operations and outstanding issues in my department.

I am very much looking forward to the professional challenge being offered to me by Gandolfo, which as you know, is the market leader in its field. Incidentally, during the recruiting process, the Gandolfo people were very impressed with the experience and knowledge that I had gained here at LithText International over the past five years.

In closing, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to you as my supervisor, as well as to my many friends and colleagues at LithText. I have truly enjoyed my years working with all of you, and am grateful for the many learning and growth opportunities I was given over the years.

I wish all of you at LithText International continued success.
