He has such a cute love story with his wife (copied from Wikipedia):

At the age of 16, J.R.R Tolkien met Edith Mary Bratt, who was three years his senior, when he and his brother Hilary moved into the boarding house where she lived. His guardian, Father Morgan, viewing Edith as a distraction from Tolkien's school work and horrified that his young charge was seriously involved with a Protestant girl, prohibited him from meeting, talking to, or even corresponding with her until he was 21. He obeyed this prohibition to the letter,[43] with one notable early exception, over which Father Morgan threatened to cut short his University career if he did not stop.[44]

On the evening of his 21st birthday, Tolkien wrote to Edith. He declared his love and asked her to marry him. Edith replied that she had already agreed to marry another man, but that she had done so because she had believed Tolkien had forgotten her. The two met beneath a railway viaduct and renewed their love. Edith returned her engagement ring and announced that she would marry Tolkien instead.[45] Following their engagement Edith reluctantly announced that she was converting to Catholicism at Tolkien's insistence. Her landlord, a staunch Protestant, was infuriated and evicted her as soon as she found other lodgings.[46] Edith and Ronald were formally engaged in Birmingham, in January 1913, and married at St. Mary Immaculate Roman Catholic Church, Warwick, on 22 March 1916.[47]

Did the waitress shape a considerable part of your childhood? If so, then probably yes.

So you got feels that someone left a dogtag with "thank you" on it?

It's pretty cool how he spent his entire life as a writer creating lore for the LOTR universe.

I never did read the LOTR books and I never enjoyed the movies. I never watched them even when the teacher would use references for bonus points.

fun fact: on tolkein's gravestone it says "beren" and on his wife Edith's gravestone it says "luthien", which were two characters in the silmarillion with a pretty epic/intense love story and he said that luthien was, basically, the most beautiful person ever, and he said he based her on his wife Edith

I can tolerate that opinion. I disagree with it, but at least you gave something of a reason.

I understand Tolkien was the most important author for most of you, as J. K. Rowling was for me when I was a kid and Albert Camus when I was in Highschool, but a simple dogtag with thankyou shouldn't give you that much "feels".

I'm sure people have done much better, and heartfelt things in the name of, or simply because of Tolkien.
