I think the first one is better. Get the facts out of the way via Email and then when the dust has settled, tell her the good stuff to her face. It’ll mean more and sound more sincere, IMHO :o)

Number 1 sounds very genuine.

I agree the first one sounds better, it has a good flow to it.

I would stick with the first one as well.

I would do the first one as well. It is more to the point and not in the mean way.

I like number 1 as well.  Number 2 seems like you’re trying too hard, and therefore comes across as less genuine.

I don’t think you should go with either. Just pick up the phone and call. Emails are so cold when dealing with an emotional situation.

@Miss Tattoo: I agree that you should call her instead of email her

I agree that the first one sounds more genuine and to the point, but it seems like you’re glossing over what seems like you disagreeing with how she’s acting. You implied that she said you were “failing her” and that she was emotionally manipulative in asking you to step down- yet you tell her that she was gracious on the phone? You seemed to be hurt by her actions because  you couldn’t realistically do everything she wanted you to do. 

I don’t think you should be uncivil or provoke any resentment or arguments because that will only cause more drama that you don’t need right now, but I wouldn’t give her false compliments that she definitely DOES NOT deserve. She’s been treating you badly and this isn’t your fault. I hope you can rebuild your friendship, but don’t let tell that she’s a gracious, wonderful friend when she hasn’t been.

Holy crap. I liked the 1st email a lot.

She never responded and now she didn’t even invite you? Maybe this was for the best. Who acts that hot and cold?
