Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come. ~ W H Auden

I can feel that she is still here with me because I have not really cried. He replied
Well, if that is the case and should you need a shoulder to cry on, call me. I said.
