I must regretfully request a personal leave to attend the funeral of my paternal grandfather. The funeral will be held in Arizona, and I will be flying out tonight. I expect to be gone from the office from October 3 to October 4, and will report back to work on Wednesday, October 5.
While there are several projects I am handling currently, my work will not be affected by such a short leave. However, in the even that my assistance is required, I can be contacted via phone or e-mail.

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of my grandfather's death. He passed away last night, and his funeral is going to be in New York tomorrow. I must leave today in order to attend the funeral and help with the organizing.
Hence, I would like to ask for a leave of absence from November 3 to 5 so I can pay my last respects. I will be rejoining work on the 7th.
I am currently working on the Davidson account, and my team, including John Smith and Robert Redford, can cover for me until I return.
If you need to reach me, you can call my personal number during the leave.
