Look Family and Friends: I appreciate all of you for being here, but do not stand at my grave and weep, for 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 rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in a circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. Please do not dwell upon my death, but just CELEBRATE my LIFE!!!
