Dear Mr. Williams,
This is to apologize for the lapse in my monthly payments. Actually, I met with an accident 2 months before and was hospitalized all this time. I have undergone several operations in this BCP-222 time and am on bed rest now. I can join back to the job after another 2 months or so.
All these 4 months I have not got my salary. That is why I could not cover up for the monthly payments. I guess, the situation shall get normal once I join back the work. I request you settle down for the forbearance for a few months. I can not afford to lose this house.
Rest, I shall wait for your response.
Regards, Debra JonesContact
