YoursTruly

Signing off at the end of a letter can be done in a variety of ways. Theres's the impersonal:
Regards,

the terse (but false):
Yours,

the insincere:
Sincerely,

the obsequious:
Respectfully,

and the even more craven:
V/r,

("Very respectfully"). The erudite Latinist may try:
Vale,

("Be healthy"). To a dear comrade one might venture:
Fondly,

in a relationship where the out-and-out:
Love,

is far too daring. But my personal favorite closing is simply the optimistic and ambiguous:
Best,

Sometimes an inadvertent typo renders this as:
Beset,

which is, alas, all too often accurate in these hectic times ...
