Why send a retirement email? Is somebody retiring at work? Maybe it's time to send them a funny note?
Retirement is pretty well always a joyous occasion (unless, of course, the person is being forced to retire early). Therefore, you probably want to send them something light that they can chuckle at.
Funny things to email are sometimes hard to find and you can look through a lot of messages before finding one that is "right" for your situation.
That's why I designed this funny retirement email. You can add your own touch to it based on the sense of humor of the retiree.
I also have a funny retirement email card template for you in the Greeting Card section. If you want to send an e-card to the person instead of an e-mail (then click here).
(Of course, you can always print the message on a real card and hand it to the person if you want!)
