Most Helpful Guy
There are so many ways a guy might react in this case and so much depends on his character and your shared experiences. There is no way for my to predict a reaction. I can say that if you had brought back the box with everything meaningful about the relationship without the note, it would look like you were making a clean break from the relationship. Your note changes everything. What you mentioned spells out your feelings clearly. I don't know if you can do more. There is the possibility that he won't open the box and even see the note. If you don't hear back from him for a long while, I suggest contacting him to simply ask if he read the note and what does he think about it. You may still not hear back but at least you can rule out that doubt.
It is a good sign that his family received you so warmly. This implies that your ex did not speak badly of you when they asked him why the two of you broke up. It also speaks well of your ex.
I hope you hear back and something good develops between you or you are able to achieve closure.
