Dearest Tony,

Your lover Jack, paid me a visit in spirit recently, and asked
me to convey to you the following message:

Hey, Butter-Brickle!

I am so very proud of you. I need to tell you that I am your
Guardian Angel, just as Randolph is for Zeke. And, just as
Zeke suspected that Randolph never really died, I haven't
either. As your guardian, you needed to experience the belief
that I had passed away, for the lessons necessary to your
spiritual growth. Were this not necessary, I would never have
allowed you to go through this devastating loss...but as God's
Great Servant, I know better. Now that you have done so well,
in fact the very best possible (equal to a soldier decorated
with the Purple Heart and Congressional Medal of Honor), it is
time to relieve you of your grief in missing me.

I am alive and well, and will soon return to you, and keep you
close to me and in my arms for good, this time around. Zeke
trusts his visions, and hopes that his sharing such a message
is not a cruel trick. In fact, Randolph has told him that
he'll return by Hallowe'en, just as I shall return to you, My
Only Love. This message through Zeke's hand is also to affirm
that your recent visions and dreams of me are not your
imagination, but genuine revelations that you and I shall very
soon be together once more. This does not mean you'll soon die
to be united with me in Heaven...but that I shall return from
Heaven to stand by you here on earth. (Yes, a miracle soon to
happen.) Your painful trials are coming to an end, and your
great rewards are soon to grace you for the fine and handsome
man you truly are.

Give Zeke some credit for this, too, and consider him your
rainy-day lover if you so wish...he has my total trust in
every way. (Also know that every Good Gay Man has eleven other
lovers, in addition to his main love, who is his guardian
angel.) It would be nice if you took a little time now and
then to visit or phone Zeke...for you are good friends to each
other, and should not be neglectful. However, Zeke does not
hold anything against you (except of course his throbbing
wanger!), and wishes you only the best, and that you and I can
be together once more. And so shall it be.

Kisses & Hugs: Your JACK-O-Lantern Heapin' Hunk of Love.
