Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your dear love one. “And no resident will say: I am sick…” Isa 33:24. This is a promise God has made known in his word. Perhaps one day in the divine future you or I may see again those fallen from our lives due to a sickness or illness that led to an untimely death. Prayers go out to the surviving family and friends may the God of comfort continue to bless you and yours.

For Horton...

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.

I just heard of Mr. Foote's passing. My deepest condolences to the family. Over the years Mr. Foote gave me advice and encouragement when my family refused to recognize my desire to write. His Orphans Home Cycle, though, managed to win them over. In writing about his father's life he also captured the essence of my own father's up-bringing, making him realize the worth of such an undertaking. A generous and kind man whose influence will be felt for generations, Mr. Foote will be deeply missed.

REST IN PEACE HORTON

I read and admired Mr. Foote's plays and screenplays and wrote him to tell him so back in the mid 1990s. He very kindly responded with a personal letter. I believe him to be the greatest of our American dramatists. I just wrote to a friend that he died peacefully in his sleep, just as he deserved.

The Couch family sends you our deep sympathies. Our mother was from Wharton, Willynn Brooks. Her parents were Leland Elmore Brooks and Willynn Miles Brooks. I recall several summers as a child visiting Wharton for several weeks and getting to visit with your dad and grandmother, among others. I also had the pleasure of another visit with him in Dallas when I was in college. "Courtship" and "Valentine's Day" were being presented at a local theater. I am thankful that so many of his works have been published. My daughters will get a touch of understanding about Wharton from them. Your dad was always welcoming, charming, open and so gentle. He will be deeply missed by so many. Blessings and prayers to all of you.

Nancy Miles Couch Davis, Leland Brooks Couch, and Jot Couch
