Yours Affectionately
Your Loving Daughter
Your Loving Son
Your Affectionate Brother
I remain…

For those who are not related by blood, the letter can end as…

Yours Sincerely
Yours Affectionately
Yours Ever

The endings are sometimes written in reverse order as….

Sincerely Yours
Affectionately Yours

A student addressing his teacher or headmaster usually ends his / her letter as…

Yours Obediently
Your Obedient Student
