Answer
Congratulations on 15 yeas with your company. I recently had my 30th year anniversary with my company.

Here is what I wrote to my Boss who is the owner of the company.

Time flies so fast. Can you believe that 30 years ago today I started working for AIM? It had been in existence for a year and we had a handful of employees.

I have a hard time believing that time has gone so fastů.where did it go? I can tell you one thing that my work has been interesting, rewarding and challenging at times, but it has never been boring at AIM. There is no place I would rather work than AIM and on one I would rather work for than Mr. Ron Wright.

You might not know your boss as well as I do mine.

Maybe something like I very much enjoy my work at __________company. Thank you so much for the opportunity to spend 15 years learning and growing with your company. I am looking forward to the next 15 years.
