Dear {Recipient},


With this letter I hereby wish to apologize for my absence during {Name of the event}. I am fully aware of the fact that you expected me to be there, since it was important that I attend, but I was simply not able to make it.


I hope this occurrence would not reflect on your overall opinion about me. In general, when I make an agreement, I am able to keep it, so I am both sorry and embarrassed that I was not able to keep my promise given to you.


Please call me as soon as you can. We can further discuss the matter, and I can begin to make amends for my lack of ability to follow through.
