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.

    How can one express their feelings in words when you lose a loved one ? I don’t think you can when that loved one was so special as Aunt Helen was to so many. She was a very caring, quick witted loving person. I was so happy to have spent time with her in October . Aunt Helen will always have a special place in my heart and I will miss her dearly. Charlotte, Bob, Dave, Supajee, Thomas, Irene and the rest of Aunt Helen’s family, I am very sorry for your loss.–xoxo

    To Charlotte & family,
    Our deepest sympathies to you and your family. Your mom was a special friend to my mother Barbara Jones at Sandalwood. She was a vibrant lady and we enjoyed visiting with her each time we visited Sandalwood. She took my mom under her wing and off to bingo every Friday night. Mom would never have won a game if it was not for Helen sitting beside her checking her numbers. We will miss your mom. Barbara, Kelly & Linda Jones
