Like a bird singing in the rain, let gratefulmemoriessurviveintimeof sorrow. –RobertLouisStevenson I AM NOT THERE Do not stand by my grave and weep, for I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am diamonds that glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush. I am the swift uplifting rush of butterflies in joyous 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. ~ Author Unknown
