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. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. I am just waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner ... All is well. -- Canon Henry Scott Holland * Death Is Nothing At All * "In its own unique way, grapples with the agony of grief and presents a simple message of comfort and reassurance." -- Christian Bookshop Directory * . *
