    Grandpa, you will be missed and thought of often. Memories of fun summer breaks at Grandpa’s and Grandma’s farm will always be with me. Tractor riding, picking raspberries, the swing, the see-saw, riding old bikes, the barn, the dogs, the memories in my heart always. Thank you for your kindness and love, I love you.
    Love,
    Michelle

    The world needs good people, kind people who make life less difficult for each other.
    My Dad is a very kind and good person and will be missed by all. My Dad is one who is always aware of the needs of others, or their pain and fear and unhappiness, and their search for self-respect.
    Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever!!!!
    Love Always,
    Larry

    A Poem for the Grieving . . .

    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 waken in the morning’s hush,

    I am the swift uplifting rush

    Of quiet birds in circled flight.

    I am the stars that shine at night.

    Do not stand at my grave and cry,

    I am not there, I did not die.
