“Death is nothing at all.  It does not count.

I have only slipped away into the next room.

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 an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.  All is well.”  - Sir Henry Scott-Holland
