Subject: Leave required due to death in the family

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I am writing this letter to inform you about the unfortunate and unexpected passing away of my uncle today. I intend to leave tonight and be out of town for the funeral and related arrangements until {date}.

I request you to grant me seven days of emergency leaves because of such circumstances.

I trust that my work over the last few years speaks for itself about my willingness to make all endeavors to catch up satisfactorily upon my return. I am confident that my current unfinished tasks will not be negatively affected by this short absence.

Once I return to the office on {date}, I hope to be able to concentrate on my work much more effectively.

Thank you for your support during this time.

Yours sincerely,
{Your Name}
