"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 - I'd come, could I but find a way! But would not grief and tears 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, 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."
