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; I’d come, could I but find a way! But would not tears and grief be barriers?) And when you hear a song or see a bird, I loved, please do not let the thought of me be sad- for I am loving you just as I always have…you were so good to me! There are so many things I wanted still to do- too 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.
