All that i see as worded wrong is

“This opportunity gives me the chance to grow professionally and will be closer to our families.”

you change who you are talking about in the sentence, me and our…other than that it is good 🙂

@Mrs.KMM:  I’d add the word ‘continue’ in the middle part – ie:  The opportunity gives me the chance to continue to grow …. (without it, it implies you aren’t growing now)…. I’d also change the ‘our families’ to “my family”.

I’d also take the “thank you for your understanding” in the 3rd paragraph – because it’s implying something that hasn’t happened (unless it has) :)…..  how about leaving that out and continuing with:  Thank you for your support over the years.  I wish you all the best…

@Mrs.KMM: I was going to point out the same thing, and I think your edit is perfect! I think this letter looks really good and is professional. If there’s a way to make it slightly more personal (i.e. maybe specify something you enjoyed about working there or a way in which you professionally benefitted from this experience), I think that may help a little bit. Make it read less like the standard resignation form letter, if that makes sense.

@Mrs.KMM: I was going to suggest the change in the families sentence, but your revised one is perfect.  With that change, sounds great!
