All is well

“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 still are. Call me my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way, which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, and pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it ever was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow in it. Life means all that it ever meant…Why should I be out 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.” - Unknown
