Lawyers or trustees who represent an entire estate can use this resignation letter to delicately withdraw from their position as power of attorney for a family.
This letter is to advise all concerned that I am resigning the power of attorney position for the Lodge Estate. My resignation is effective in six months time, or sooner if you are able to find a suitable replacement. (To that end, I am available to interview candidates at your request.)
I feel that during the 35 years that I have held the position, I have put the needs of the Lodge family first again and again. Now, the time has come to put my own health first. I am no longer a young man. Indeed; I'm the same age as Hiram at the time of his passing.
I am truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. I have come to deeply care for heirs Veronica and Sabrina.
