Latin term or phrase: ex animo
Used as a closing to a letter.

English translation:EX ANIMA: "from my soul."
Explanation:
Latin ANIMUS (which is automatically respelled when used with EX, to yield EX ANIMO) can mean "mind" or "character", or even "anger".

So it's more likely that the phrase intended is EX ANIMA, since ANIMA can mean "breath" or "life" or "soul".

Heartly


Explanation:
Animus in Latin stands for Spirit, while Anima is Soul.
In this case animo is the singular ablative form of Animus; If it referred to Anima, would be Anima (ablative is the same).
So I think that your translation could simply be:heartly.
Hope this helps
