Dear Mother, Father, and Grandmother,

this will be my last letter to you for tomorrow my beloved husband will take the gift of men and leave behind his ageing body. I will take that same gift, as I chose to do when I bound my soul to his, and we will take this great journey into the unknown together in the spirit of our joint fore-parents Eärendil and Elwing.

I want you to know how much I love you all; without your love and guidance I would not have been who I am. And I know that I can truly say that it is, in good measure, thanks to yourselves that my beloved and I leave our city, our country and all of Middle Earth, a safer place than it was when we first met.

Think only of me with happiness, for that is how I think of you all, and I know that when I take the gift it will be as if to sleep and wake again in a new and exciting place. My only sorrow is that I will not be able to write to you all again to share with you whatever this new future holds for us.

Goodbye to you all from your loving
