  •  Feel the Love she gave (4+ / 0-)

    It's still here, in you.You'll miss her at the oddest times and there will be littlethings that make you cry. I know. Been there.
    But she left behind in you and your brothers and sisters and all of her grandchildren a lifetime of stories and laughter and love.
    I leave you with an Irish blessing
    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 the 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 waken in the morning's hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of gentle birds in circling 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...

    Intolerance betrays want of faith in one's cause. Mohandas Gandhi
