191. In Twenty Years

John Henry Holliday, DDS
I have been given fourteen and a half years more than I was promised, and after that these six months amongst you all in this new time. I cannot expect that I will be granted more than twenty more years, for even though I attend your events and celebrations, greet you, write to you or visit, I am gravely ill. My body will lie under the green grass in the red soil of Georgia, and I myself will be at peace with my old friends. And I will be happy then, and healthy, waiting for those few others I have loved to join me once again. When I was dying in Glenwood Springs, I did not wish to burden my friends and family with either my illness and passing or, far less, the joy of a hope for resumption of intimacy followed by the pain of immediate loss. Now I am here with you all. Though I genuinely feel profoundly sad that I will cause you pain, I cannot, for the companionship, love, and indeed joy that I now receive, bring myself to absent myself from you all to die alone. I am sorry. But I will await you and welcome you at the time of your own passing. And Gabriel - Gabriel, you will be there always until the end of days, as you always were. In Birth, in Death, before and after. Comfort beyond words, love beyond the grave.
