   Summer 2005                         Nana blowing a kiss

 Nana's most favorite place to go was York, Maine.  She and my mom vacationed there together many summers until nana was diagnosed with ALS.  She loved lighthouses, walks on the beach and wearing her bikini !

 I Did Not Die

Do not stand at my grave and forever 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 forever cry

I am not there.  I did not die.

Michelle : I am so sorry to hear this; I have not been around these past few days and didn't realize she had passed away.
I will remember you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
