    so vainly like this.

    Can you say "so vainly like this" when you regret something so much?

    It's a great regret that even though we cherished you as our best customer, our contract with you will be over soon so vainly like this.

    Re: so vainly like this.

    What about this?

    It's a regret that our relationship with you will end up in vain with contract termination soon.

    Re: so vainly like this.

    Vain means "producing no result; useless."

    Are you sure you want to tell your customer that your relationship with him has been useless?
