What information should an exit letter contain?

My boss has asked me to write my own an "intent to leave" letter and I'm wondering if anything else should go in it beside the date of my last day of work.
I'm leaving my job after 5 years because it's transitioning into a position that's not compatible with my long term goals. My boss and I have both agreed that it's a good decision and he's asked me to write a letter for HR which includes my final date of work. I'm wondering if I should include additional information like - things I liked about the job, positive feedback about my boss, things I've achieved while I've been with the company. I work off-site so it's possible that I won't have an in-person exit interview or actually ever see anyone at my company again and I want to make sure I'm protected and that this all ends smoothly.
