I want you to know that we are very excited about your achievement and know that you really have persevered to earn it. I would like nothing better than to have you return to Springfield to work with us in completing our product. Please keep us informed of your progress.

Your optimistic outlook and abundance of vigor have helped make our workplace a pleasant place to labor. Your positive contributions to the dynamics of this department will be greatly missed. You definitely are worthy of the new position.
