To loved ones, and to those who have never known me:
If you must shed tears, let not a single tear be shed without meaning.
Question not your faith or lack thereof, but instead let it carry you through to the morrow and all the rest of your days.
Let there be no blame placed upon innocent minds and hearts, nor upon ideals which have no voice to raise in their own defense.
Do not think that your life lacks meaning simply because I am no longer here with you. If you feel that you have nothing left, then let your meaning be to carry on and finish what I could not.
And above all else, do not let the darkness of hate and despair shroud you like a thick blanket. Instead, let your heart become the beacon and shine the light of love, honor, and peace upon a world which so desperately needs it.
Carry these words with you always and you shall know happiness in my absence; I look forward to seeing you when our time to be together again comes.
