Death is a dialogue between
The spirit and the dust.
"Dissolve," says Death. The Spirit, "Sir,
I have another trust."

Death doubts it, argues from the ground.
The Spirit turns away,
Just laying off, for evidence,
An overcoat of clay.

- Emily Dickinson

Rest easy, Chuck.

May angels carry you to your final rest, and may you have been in heaven half an hour before the Devil knew you were dead.
God bless you Chuck.
