Oh that poor woman.

Author Reply: I tend to agree. She has lost her husband and three of her four sons, as well as her father-in-law. Her world must seem to have crashed down around her!

“Then It will not be easily recovered by Sauron or his creatures, as none of them can bear the effects of Water easily. Water is antithetical to Sauron’s own nature as one who has ever been associated with Fire, while the Nazgűl cannot bear its touch."

What a perceptive idea as to why the River was never more carefully searched. I'm sure the Ring and its fate was never far from Elrond's thoughts.

Author Reply: There had to be some reason why there weren't divers of some sort sent out to find the Ring. And in his other writings Tolkien indicated that the Nazgul couldn't easily cross moving water. The Fords of the Bruinen must have looked easy, as the water there was quite shallow, and the horses they rode would be the ones to actually deal with the water's presence; but then the flood was released. How terrified the Black Riders must have been at that point!
