If You Want to Do More Than Just the Basics with Your Resignation Letter. You can always write more, and craft a longer resignation letter, but the truth is that it isn't necessary. You can add a portion of the note where you thank your manager or boss for the opportunities and time you have had together, or add that you hope to keep in touch, but in reality, if you really feel this way you probably should make an effort and find an opportunity to say these things in person (rather than getting an email).
Breaking up is hard to do, but pouring your heart out on paper is rather awkward. There is really no need for any other information in your resignation letter (including a reason __ which is completely optional). No effusive template and formatting effort is required. This is not a letter that is going to be hanging on anyone's wall, and it probably won't even be filed away!
