A gem I came accross. Wanted to share it with you all...
Death is nothing at all,I have only slipped awayinto the next room.I am I,and you are you;whatever we were to each other,that, we still are.Call me by my old familiar name,speak to me in the easy waywhich you always used,put no difference in your tone,wear no forced airof solemnity or sorrow.Laugh as we always laughedat the little jokes we shared together.Let my name ever bethe household word that it always was.Let it be spoken without effect,without the trace of a shadow on it.Life means allthat it ever meant.It is the same as it ever was.There is unbroken continuity.Why should I be out of mindbecause I am out of sight?I am waiting for you,for an interval,somewhere very near,just around the corner.
All is well.
