This quote is for her. She is such a wonderful person, who will be sorely missed.
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there.
I did not die.
This is part of a longer poem, but I can't remember the name or the rest of the words. Perhaps if you Google the first few words you'll find it. It's definitely worth reading. Sorry for your loss. I found it for you. Here it is:
Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep
By Mary Elizabeth Frye
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 circled 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.

Thank you so much for the complete poem. I didn't even think of googling it. I just thought that was it. I appreciate the sentiments.
Thanks TIMETRAVELER2 for finding the entire poem, it's Beautiful!
Sorry for your loss. May she rest in peace.
As I once said, sadness is nothing more than an illusion when you're grieving from the loss of a close friend. People often go months, maybe up to a year grieving for someone before feeling better. I'm in the tail end of losing someone myself; a twitter friend by the name of Sabrina Carpenter. She's still here. Anyways, I'm sorry about your loss, Kenna. May she rest in peace. My heart goes out to you.
Thank you, Ivan. I'm sorry for your loss, too.
Kenna, I can now understand the grief that you must be going through. I totally understand because I am now going through it myself. I'm glad that you posted what you did. Ed Lee, the mayor of the city that I am from, had a heart attack while grocery shopping Monday evening and died several hours later at SF General. Everyone back home is in as much shock as I am. I always respected Mayor Lee both as a person and and as Mayor. Thanks again Kenna.

My mother passed away last week she would have been 93 on the 5th of May. It seems strange not to pick up the phone and talk to her. She was suffering so we were glad to see her go to be with my Dad but also sorry that she was gone.

She was 90 and in poor health. I won't be going to her funeral, and she knew and understood this, and why. We made our peace and said our goodbyes last year when I went to see her after she had broken her leg. I'm so alone now. I have no one left in the world who loves me...
