Phyllis was a kind and gentle person. I cannot remember seeing her angry during my childhood years playing with my dear friend Nasrin in their house in Tehran. I will retain the fond memories I have of her in my heart. She is free now.

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 glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
(Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!)

A long and good life.
Am just old enough to remember Aunt Phyllis leaving Eastbourne all those years ago and what a journey since !
Great memories of Aunt Phyllis and Uncle Nasser visiting us and the then young Philip, Nasrin and Nader. Also of letters from Aunt Phyllis over so many years telling us about her growing family.
It was good that some years ago that our Chris was able to visit her, Philip and Nader and their families, a visit he very much enjoyed.
Like Barbara's Dad, Aunt Phyllis was much loved by my father and, indeed, was loved by all her family in the UK as was Uncle Nasser.
The pictures tell of a good life surrounded by a loving family.
Pat, Chris and Jennifer join me in sending our sincere condolences to all her family.
With love to all.
