That may work for you -- maybe not for the OP.

Great advice -- can apply to several other fields too (i'm thinking programming in my case).

I am agreeing -- it is not recommended to be using the extremely passive, present tense! ;-)

comment What is a good tool for organizing story notes?
May i suggest that you summarize your findings in your answer, or move your short answer to a comment to the question? (I believe that's standard form on SE.)

comment How should I capitalise headlines for professional Web writing? (Sentence case vs title case)
I agree about capitalization helping to distinguish between top-level and low-level headings. I'd just like to add that doing so is more necessary when the various other stylistic variables -- font family, size, weight, etc -- are not being used to their full extent. An extreme case (excuse the pun) of this is when ALL CAPS are used for the top heading when there are no stylistic alternatives. (But let me opine, block capitals are heavily overused!)

That's a good point, what. Maybe the OP should ask over at workplace.stackexchange.com with a reworded introduction: "would this work as a farewell..."

I added 3rd item. It doesn't make it more sincere, just sound less "over-the-top".
