This is (name of new favorite person) I just wanted to take the time to let you know what an amazing boss you are, and to thank you for everything you did the three years I worked at (The greatest coffee shop ever.) I have worked for two other companies since yours, and I haven't experienced a manager/boss who treated their employees as well and kindly as you did! I really do appreciate all the little things you did, such as having the "Family" Dinners so we all could hang out, the texts making sure we were okay when you noticed that we didn't seem ourselves, and just the incredible flexibility and understanding you had in every situation. If we ever had any suggestions or comments, you always considered them to make sure our voices were heard and we had the best experience as possible. For that, I just wanted to thank you again, because I have never felt so comfortable and enjoyed my job as much as I did at (The greatest coffee shop ever!) I hope everything is going well!]
Well, shucks. I'll tumble down a mountain any day to get an email like that at the end!
