"To Family, Friends and Fans of Derek Walcott,
A life well lived. Educator, artist, writer. As he aged, and in his pondering, he must have surely thought about what lies beyond this life, as we all do. It comforts us to know, that man...who is made in God's image...will not live a mere 70 years, "80 with special mightiness"....only to return to dust. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, we awaken from death, into a paradise of God's making, as He initially purposed. Until that blessed time, may He strengthen and bless you.
Sincerely, A.A. Bayonne NJ USA"
