A farewell is an occasion of extremes. At one end there is grief and sadness because of the departing of someone and on the other end it is a happy occasion as it marks the beginning on new frontiers in life. On such an occasion, the best way to let your thoughts speak is to write a farewell message. Farewell messages are written in accordance with the type of farewell it is. They are generally polite notes which have to contain a bundle of emotions.
Farewell messages can be of various kinds. The following are a few examples:
Farewell message to friend
Farewell message to colleague on retirement
Farewell message to teacher
Farewell message to student
