at the age of 95 years:

“Our Mom, Grammie, and Aunty Girly” 
October 29 to November 27, 2021 
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 ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the early morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night,
Do not stand at my grave and cry. 
I am not there, I did not die.
