We will miss you greatly and appreciate all your love and devotion. You were our mentor and taught us the way of life on your own quiet way. Your sense of humor will live on in our hearts. You looked out for others and helped many people with your generosity. We are all blessed by your life, and it was when you were surrounded by your loved ones that you said your final farewell.

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 softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain; I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush; I am in the graceful rush of birds circling in flight. I am the star shine of the night. I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in the quiet room. I am the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I did not die…
