Dad's Eulogy to Mum:

I AM NOT HERE
Don't stand by my grave and weep,
For I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint of snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn's rain

When you awaken in the morning, hush
For I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in gentle 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.

My beautiful, kind, amazing, lovely and brilliant Mum,
This will be my last message to you on the tribute page. From now on I will write to you privately in a diary. We just got back from the memorial for you. It was lovely and I think you would have approved. The water was calm and tranquil and there was a lovely breeze. Once we got on the ocean it was the type of clear, magical blue you would have loved. The captain and co-captain blew the horn for you and the bagpipes were being played when we got to where we would let you go. Dad spoke some words to you that I will add to the tribute page as they were incredible.
Dad, Mark, Kristin, Richard and I all held ribbons as we lowered you into the water and let go of you one by one. Dad let go of you last. You are now free and will be able to re-travel the world you loved so much. A storm is just beginning now. It is thundering and there is lightning and it is raining so thank you for giving us the perfect weather to let you go. I will see you again when it is my time to be with you.
I will love you forever and ever.
Heidi
