    I’m finding it hard to know what to say to you both as I cannot even begin to imagine what you are feeling right now. Wendy was only in my life for a few years but in that time she influenced me more then she even knew. She was a such a good mom to you both that it just spread to every young person around her. A true gift. I am truly sorry for your loss. Please know that my thoughts are with you!

    Some words of comfort for you in these hard times…Our deepest sympathies

    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 on ripened grain
    I am the gentle autumn rain.

    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am that 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.

    Wendy was a beautiful person who made me feel beautiful and special. Her parting words to me each month were, ‘always a pleasure, my dear, always a pleasure’. I will miss her terribly but I am glad for the honour of having had a small part of her life for the past 25 years.
