SAMPLE FAREWELL SPEECH
Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen,
It seems like just the other day when we were all talking about [insert the name of the person you are saying farewell to]'s farewell as they move on to [insert a few specific details here].
I remember thinking that it would be hard to say goodbye ... and I was right - it is hard.
Yet I consider myself fortunate to have met such a special person ... a person that we care so much about ... that it makes saying goodbye to him / her hard!
As we say goodbye, we remind ourselves that farewells are not forever, nor are they the end. They are simply words to say that we will miss you dearly and that we will remember you fondly.
Although we may be separated by time and distance in the interim, nothing will diminish the important role that you have and always will play in our lives.
We wish you happy adventures, fantastic new friendships, amazing experiences and the journey of a lifetime.
Richard Bach says, "Can miles truly separate you from friends? If you want to be with someone you love ... aren't you already there?"
And so it is ... and always will be with you as we carry you always close to our hearts.
May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand - Irish Blessing
