Stephen and Jeanne, so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom.
Please accept our sincere condolences.
Stephen & Jeanne:
Sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. A neighbour gave us the following poem when my mother passed away. I think it says so much and I want to pass it along to you now in hopes that it helps in some small way. I still read it often for comfort and solace.
• From Rosamunde Pilcher’s book SEPTEMBER:
I have not gone, I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened, everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, you are you, and the old life we lived 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 in your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh at the little jokes we shared 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 effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant, it is the same as it 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 waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well!
Paul and Gail Fancy
Stephen and Jeannie – we were saddened to hear of your mom’s passing and would like to send our deepest sympathy to you both.
Take care and we will remember you both in our prayers.
