To Those I Love:

If I should ever leave you, whom I love, to go along the silent way, grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you there. I'd come if I could but find a way! But would not tears and grief be barriers?

And when you hear a song or see a bird or tree I love, please do not let the thought of me be sad, for I'm loving you as much as I always have. You were so good to me! There are so many things I wanted still to do, so many things to say to you. Remember that I did not fear, it was just leaving you that was so hard to face. We cannot see beyond, but this I know -- I loved you so -- 'twas heaven here with you.

Grateful to God for life, friendship, kindness and prayers.
