A Better Language.

"When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but is translated into a better language."

-John Donne

Tonight, my uncle's chapter was translated into a better language. Now, he sees Christ, not through a glass, darkly, but face to face. Now, he knows as he is known, not merely in part. Now, the term is over for him and the holidays have begun... the new Chapter is upon him, the Chapter none of us here know anything about, but can imagine with joy. Joy unspeakable.
