Your friend or colleague is wrapping up a career and retiring.
This event represents a huge transition in someone’s life. Celebration is in order, but you wonder, “How do you congratulate a friend on retirement without sounding cheesy?”
If the person is a co-worker, you might have mixed emotions yourself.
You may feel a bit envious, but you’ll miss seeing your friend’s face at work.
For the most part, though, you’re excited for your friend and want to say something meaningful.
