"I hope no one who reads this book has been quite as miserable as Susan and Lucy were that night, but if you have been--if you've been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you--you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness.
For sometimes it is necissary to let the images, sounds, and memories flow from us as a film from a reel...and when it runs out, when there is nothing left, only then are we alone with a certain tragic peace.
I hope you are well, that this struck you as beautiful rather than true. And that either way, on the other side you are reading this happier than they.
love to you.
