Mary Jo and love to you....God's peace I pray for you. I know how to feels to loose both parents. I told Myra, when I lost my Mother, that I now feel like an orphan. I had to turn to others in my life to play some sort of a "parent role" because we never get over the need for that. I will be praying for your whole family that God will hold you in the palm of His hand. Dave Brier

Do Not Stand...

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.

Rest in Peace Dad!
