RALSTON, Hazel -

Passed away peacefully at Extendicare on March 9, 2013 in her 91st year. Hazel will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her family and friends. A private family service has been scheduled.

I cannot say and I will not say That she is dead, she is just away. With a cheery smile and a wave of hand She has wandered into an unknown land; And left us dreaming how very fair Its needs must be, since she lingers there.

And you-oh you, who the wildest yearn From the old-time step and the glad return- Think of her faring on, as dear In the love of there, as the love of here Think of her still the same way, I say; She is not dead, she is just away.

James Whitcomb Riley, American poet (1849 - 1916)
