Message 1446440 - Posted: 24 Nov 2013, 23:21:54 UTC - in response to Message 1441916.  

Thankyou, but I am just pleased to do what I can to help Thomas.

John's friend Keith/Gnu has asked me to post this for him, and I am happy to do so.

Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away
into the next room.

I am I, and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
that we are still.

Call me by my old familiar name,
speak to me in the easy way
which you have always used to.
Put no difference in your tone,
wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was,
let it be spoken without effect,
without a trace of shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was;
there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval
somewhere very near,

just around the corner.

All is well.
Nothing is past; 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!




Good words, especially when there are none that I can offer. I only got back from a break in Devon, a few hours ago and I found this thread. I'm shocked and stunned at this bad news - truly shocked. Perhaps I am more shocked than many here, as I went to my 'mother-in-law's' funeral on Wednesday, whilst on holiday. I have been thinking about 'sponsoring' a dog with the Dog's Trust, for a little while now....perhaps I will now make that a little more solid than a thought.

Don't take life too seriously, as you'll never come out of it alive!
