A New Printable Quote

I finally have a new printable quote for you, and it is a very special one, written in 1932 by an American woman, Mary Elizabeth Frye. Margaret Schwarzkopf, a young German Jewish woman, was staying with Mrs Frye and her husband; she was concerned about her ill mother, who was still living in Germany. Margaret had been warned not to return home to Germany, because of the increasing unrest there. Sadly, she never saw her mother again, as she died not long after. A heartbroken Margaret said to Mrs Frye that she had never had the chance to "stand by my mother's grave and shed a tear".

This was the inspiration for the poem below, first written on a brown paper shopping bag:

FINAL NOTE: This poem, often read at funerals, was introduced to the United Kingdom in 1995, when the father of a soldier read it on BBC radio in memory of his son. The soldier had been killed by a bomb in Northern Ireland, and had left the poem among his personal effects; in an envelope simply marked: To all my loved ones.

If you love someone, they never really leave you; 
for, as long as you hold them in your heart, they are with you always.

So Sorry...

In case anyone has been wondering why I haven't posted any more quotes here - I'm so sorry, but I'm having internet problems, and am waiting for them to get fixed. I can post and comment, but can only download if it's a very small file - and I can't upload at all. My internet is only working to about 20% of what it should be, and is constantly dropping out. My provider said a technician would need to investigate further to find out what is going on (or what's not going on, I should say!)

So, please bear with me, and I'll be back as soon as I possibly can!
