In Remembrance of Jesse Gould

1981 - 2019

 

I love you forever, Jessebelle. 

You fought so hard for so long. Your courage and bravery are incredible. 

I am so proud of you and I always will be. You’ll not only live in my heart but I know you live on with me in a way I’ll only truly know too when I pass and we are reunited. 

With love for eternity, your Mighty Oak. 

We will be together again. Until then. Come with me, stay close and I shall show you the world and never let your name be forgotten. 

I understand why you had to go Jess, but I know you are near. I feel you, I just know. 

I love you now and forever. 5eva. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

 

“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. 

How we will laugh at the trouble of parting!”
