"In loving remembrance of Cyrus Kordian and Vida Sohaili Kordian, laid
to rest in Harare within nine days of one another. A searing double
blow to the Sohaili, Kordian and Kee-Tui families who will remember
them with love, affection and a deep sense of loss. No more pain and
Death is nothing at all - I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by my old
familiar names, speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Laugh as we always laughed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray
for me. Let my name be the household word that it always was. Let it
be spoken without effort. Life means all it ever meant. It is the same
as it ever was: there is absolutely unbroken continuity. Why should I
be out of your mind because I am out of sight. I am but waiting fo
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....
