A most remarkable lady...feisty, stubborn, tenacious, unshakeable, determined and strong willed, BUT generous, funny, loving, unselfish and giving. A wonderful Mum, grandmother and great grandmother. Mum has left us with an enormous void in our lives, a terrible pain in our hearts, but a pride that she was ours and we were hers. We pay the price for loving her so much by feeling such pain, sorrow and grief. Goodnight Mum, God Bless you for all that you have given us. Rest in peace our dear and precious Mum.
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's 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.
