"As long as we can love each other, and remember the feeling of love we had, we can die, without ever going away. All the love you created is still there. All the memories are still there. You live on - in the hearts of everyone you have touched and nurtured while you were here. Death ends a life, not a relationship." From Tuesdays with Morrie.
