Sympathies and hope this poem by Henry Scott Holland helps a bit. Love and best wishes, Naomi and family.
Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.
Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into 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, 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. Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.
All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
Love and Sympathy to Mrs Penny, Kevin and Trish, Karen and Jim, Collin and Sandy and families.
love from George, Janet (dec) Bruce, Michelle and families.
Loved father of Kevin and Trish. Grandfather to Scott and Allana, Lee and Steven, Carly and Shane. Great Grandfather to Travis and Clive.
You led the way in many things of life and by your example helped us with our journey. May your road be wide and inviting.
