Even at such an advanced age, Christopher's intelligence shone through; and in the lovely English accent of his French speech, one could still hear the voice of his father; whose legacy he had made so much brighter and larger throughout the years. With his passing, the end has come of the second Fellowship of the Ring, father and son.

Tolkien's two time-travel stories, from which Numenor was born, were both based on the recurrence through time of a father-son pair, Edwin and Alwyn, Audoin and Auboin, Eadwine and Aelfwine, Valandil and Elendil... Blessedness-friend and Elf-friend.

All the more poignant in that Tolkien was not, I think, thinking of his own father, whom he barely remembered. Think how many of his protagonists are orphaned or fatherless!
