  2. Gail Christopher :

    “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 sun 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 circling flight.
    I am the soft star-shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.”
    I love you gramma and miss you everyday.
    Love, Gail

    Mom was so supportive, always putting her children, her family, first. She was strong, caring, generous – loved her friends, animals, books. Best of all, we had a lot of fun and laughter in our home because of her and a lot of wonderful relatives and friends, many of whom are also gone now. Our lives were richer because of Mom, and the joy of her life was all the people who loved and supported her. Mom was the heart of our family, the one who connected us all. May the ties of memory, family and friendship sustain us and keep us connected. We’ll always miss you, Mom. Love Always, Faye.
