Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 69 Days

There are now only 69 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today's quote!

He read the letter again, but could not take in any more meaning than he had done the first time, and was reduced to staring at the handwriting itself. She had made her "g"s the same way he did: He searched through the letter for every one of them, and each felt like a friendly little wave glimpsed from behind a veil. This letter was an incredible treasure, proof that Lily Potter had lived, really lived, that her warm hand had once moved across this parchment, tracing ink into these letters, these words, words about him, Harry, her son.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Kreacher's Tale"

2nd!! This was one of the rare glimpses into Harry’s parents. Where did he find the other part of the letter?

The other part of the letter Snape had taken as well as the other half of the picture with Lily on it as we found out in the Prince’s Tale chapter.

He doesn’t find it in the course of the book—not physically, anyway. He sees it as a Pensieve memory, when another person takes it. I wonder if it was found on that person’s body, or if he had hidden it somewhere else? Yet another question we might one day ask JKR

This is possibly one of my favorite quotes from all 7 books. I literally paused for a moment (quite a feat, seeing as I was reading the book at a breakneck pace) and thought at how beautiful and poetic Jo’s writing had become. Books 7 is so touching. Between this quote and the PotterCast discussion of Shell Cottage, it reminds me of how deeply powerful Deathly Hallows is and how much I can’t wait for the movie.

This is definitely one of my favourite quotations. Having lost two people very close to me (siblings), it really is something to find something of theirs. I can only imagine it would be even more moving if it was your mum that you’d never met.
