In the midst of World War II, J.R.R. Tolkien wrote a letter to his son, Michael. This is a quote from his letter.

“Still, let us both take heart of hope and of faith. The link between father and son is not only of the perishable flesh: it must have something of aeternitas (eternity) about it. There is a place called ‘heaven’ where the good here unfinished is completed; and where the stories unwritten, and the hopes unfulfilled, are continued. We may laugh together yet…”
– Letters, J.R.R. Tolkien
