Farewell to Family and Friends
Aragorn looked about the table in the Royal Quarters where he sat one final time at dinner with his personal household, at his son and daughters and their spouses, his grandchildren, at Legolas and Gimli, and at Faramir Took, who like his father had chosen to live out his final years in the King's household in Minas Tirith. "I cannot look to spend much longer in any case. Instead I would have you all remember me as I was, and so I wish all a bright future under the rule of my so capable son."
Eldarion's eyes held bright tears.
