Sample letter -For missing friend's party by slip of mind

Dear...

I never thought I would let something as important to me as your birthday that slipped from my mind.

It shows that I must be getting old.

I really apologize for the same. My only consolation is that I will have many more opportunities in the future to get it right.

Your name
