I recommend ...

Sincerely,

Simply no need for the "Yours" ... that may offend some people or seem "pushy" ...

It is too personal in my opinion ... unless you are addressing a close friend, etc.

But ... this is a matter of interpretation and opinion ...

I am American ... I practice American English, slang, etc. hehe ...

It is most common to see letters, e-mails, etc., hand written messages, etc.

Ending with ...

Sincerely,

Michael
