Subject: Re: How do you speak to your loved ones on the other side?
Hi Linda, I wondered the same thing after losing my beautiful partner of 26 years. She was the most wonderful and beautiful human I've ever known. I suffered greatly missing her and the very recent passing of my Dad brought much of it back. I don't believe they're very far away at all and I believe they can still relate to us in a myriad of ways. After My Carolyn's passing, her twin sister sent me this - I hope it helps you as much as it helped me:

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
That, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to 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 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 effect.
Without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
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 around the corner.

All is well.

Nothing is past; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before only better, infinitely happier and forever we will all be one together with Christ.
Henry Scott Holland
