Need no more explanation than that.

And congratulations on the next stage of your life!

Short and to the point. There is no need to say anything that leaves the discussion open. Things like keep in touch, maybe if the circumstances were different . . ., or I would stay if, all leave the discussion open. No need to do that. Just be respectful and offer to do whatever you can during the 30 days to make the transition go well.

Good luck and congratulations.

My way of thinking is 30 days notice is WAY to long. Why would you give up a month of your retirement over a stinking j$b. Thank him for having you re-think your retirement and tell him next Friday will be your last day.

My experience was that some people won't drop the 'please stay' business until they hear a reason from you that resonates with their own personal circumstances. So the job haters pester you until you tell them "I hate this place". The 'free time' crowd leaves you alone after you tell them you want more time for hobbies.

Keep repeating whatever reason you want and don't worry about it. Most of what you're hearing is disbelief mixed with envy and regret that they're not able to do the same.
