“Well, Marianne, it’s come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon.

Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine…

You know that I have always loved you for your beauty and wisdom…

But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey.

Endless love, see you down the road.”
