"Dearest Aunt Mabel, Mark, and Christine,
I'm so saddened by the passing of Uncle Eddie. In all the years growing up, and all the countless stories told, every single one about Uncle Eddie were kind, loving, and beautiful. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to spend time with you in Jamaica twice, those are such happy memories of the two of you. May you be comforted by one of my favorite quotes.
"There is no such thing as death! What seems so is transition;
This life of mortal breath
Is but a suburb of the life in Heaven,
Whose portal we call Death.""
