Reviews for Death is Nothing at All


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.'
