Vale...Kerri

Source...Renae
In the early hours of this morning I had the very sad news that my dear Son-in-Law's Sister had passed away after a very brave and courageous battle with cancer...
My Heart goes out to him as he and his Sister both lost their Mother suddenly in February this year as well...
She leaves a young man just turned 18...
So very very sad...
This poem I found brought Kerri to mind straightaway...
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.

Rest in Peace dear sweet Kerri...

Oh my goodness....I am so sorry. Loss of this proportion is a speechless moment. However, the poem you share here dearest, is so very beautiful, and I believe to be so true. We, the survivors are still waiting for the final frontier, across which this dear woman has already stepped. May we be the ones that take up the courage...my thoughts of support and friendship go out to you now...Anita

Oh indeed I do have wonderful memories of my mum not having much in resources, but an unlimited determination and creativity to turn the slightest thing into enchantment. My father as well possessed this, and to this day, I look at what is grand and I make it my own with literally things from junk. HAPPY MUM'S DAY Dzintra!!! Anita
