    Sending my heartfelt condolences to the entire family. She will be truly missed. Her sense of humor her way of handling things and so much more will forever be missed. She is forever loved by me and I am forever grateful for the many years i was blessed to share with her. S

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there.
    I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there.
    I did not die.
