Do not stand at my grave and weep

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 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.

My deepest sorrows go to the family, it is always hard to loose a loved one. Always remember our loved ones will always be watching over us, as long as the memories you have of him are still in your minds and in your hearts they are really never lost.

Hello Sunshine, How much I am missing you, and angry and aggrieved that you were taken so soon…where where will there ever be such blue eyes and blond hair, that joie de vivre that accompanied you in every room you entered….It is unique to you…only you, such a beautiful soul who made me laugh and inspired words of wisdom at your young age. So now the winds have taken you into another time and being..surely you are yet here in some way yet…my imagination that you have never gone. That is surely good enough always. Love you, love you to infinity and beyond Buzz Lightyear!!!Love Myracle Martynowicz and Family Always
