GONE, BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN....
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.
