Dear _________________:

 

As you know, I recently suffered the loss of _________________.

 

In order for me to recover from this tremendous personal loss, I feel that I need more time and privacy than my work schedule allows. If I am at work and on the payroll, I like to give work my full attention. I find that at this difficult period in my life, I am simply unable to give the company my full effort.

 

Thus, I am requesting a _________________ unpaid leave of absence, effective immediately. I intend to use this time to _________________.

 

I feel confident that if I allow myself the opportunity to grieve and recover, I can return to work with renewed focus and enthusiasm.

 

Thank you for understanding this request. I hope to hear your reply as soon as possible.

 

Sincerely,
