This memorial was created in memory of Janice Louise Hefford who was born on March 12, 1925 in Portland, Oregon and passed away on January 18, 2013 at the age of 87. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend. She brought kindness and joy to all who were lucky enough to surround her and she will be forever missed. 

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, 
That, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect.
Without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight? 

I am but waiting for you.
For an interval.
Somewhere. Very near.
Just around the corner.

All is well. 

-Henry Scott Holland
