Do not stand by my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am a diamond glint in the snow
I am the sunshine on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awake in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the sunshine of night
Do not stand by my grave and cry
I am not there – I did not die.
A Memorial Service will be held on February 19, 2022 at 1:00pm at First Memorial Funeral Chapel, Duncan, B.C. Our family would also like to acknowledge and express our heart felt and sincere gratitude to ALL the staff at the Chemainus Health Care Centre for the kind, caring and compassionate emotional, spiritual and physical care they provided to our Mum over the last 8 months!
