To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to inform you that Bruce Cannon has worked for me for three months now and has been a great employee for me.  We are unfortunately cutting back our department because of the economy.  Bruce has never missed a day of work and is always on time and stays late.  He was our AOM (Associate of the Month) winner last month and led our department the previous two months.  Bruce has a powerful work ethic and would be a very good employee for anyone.

Thank you,
