To all those who lost someone - please read
To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.
Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Everything remains as it
was. The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other
that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no
sorrow in your ...tone. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile,
think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without
effort. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is unbroken continuity. Why should
I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just
around the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was
before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.
