    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.

    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.

        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.

          Gregory,
          I heard about Mayor Lee. Tragic. I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad this quote is helpful. You are welcome. Hugs, Kenna
