In Memory of Mom 1919 - 2006

Mere words can never adequately express what my mother meant to me and to her family. Mom died in 2006. She raised three sons and though there were some tough times, her love and support for us never wavered.

I wish that as many photographs of her existed as exist fond memories of Mom in my heart. What I have are here for family and friends to enjoy and remember.

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 snow on the mountain's rim,
I am the laughter in children's eyes,
I am the sand at the water's edge,
I am the sunlight 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 star that shines at night,
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
