A gracious and respectable person whose work has done so much to bring so much joy to many of us in these troubled times hard to deal with (2 Tim 3:1). Perhaps more will continue to have positive experiences from a wonderful work that has had an impactful contribution to life and its anxieties.

His books were the first adult books i read. The intervening years have done nothing to lessen their power. Their ability to inspire never dims and their strange beauty never fades. I thank his gift for the recognition it has given me and their help in making my thoughts soar.

For J.G....Your story as told
by the movie Empire Of The Sun
is one of the most moving
motion pictures I have ever
seen.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

JG and Margaret would come to my restaurant in Shepherds Bush London. So kind, funny and witty I loved them both. I had the privilege of serving JG his first hamburger in 1998 (posh of course!)He said it was great and he loved it...... but would probably never order it again. Life is too short,I wish JG and Margaret could live together for a thousand years.

Love always

Dear Ballard Family,
J.G. Ballard had an amazing gift to draw people into his world of print and make them think and reflect on matters. I've heard of survivors of long internments developing a true appreciation for what really matters, "the simple things in life," love, family, etc.
“For everything there is an appointed time, even a time for every affair under the heavens…” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8).
I know the bible says we are only promised 70 or 80 years because of Adamic sin. But it also promises, (Acts 24:15) "and I have hope toward God, which hope these [men] themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous” (Acts 24:15).
This wonderful hope I want for your dear loved one as well. At any rate I'm saddened by your loss.
