“Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Wear no solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the 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. I am but waiting for you just around the corner… And all is well!”
May he rest in peace knowing his family loved him.
