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 glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn 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 cry;
I am not there, I did not die.

    My sincere condolences to the entire Greene family, especially Cousin Mattie, Richard and their brother. I did not have an opportunity to meet Nannie, but I have enjoyed knowing her brothers and her sister and want to express my love and concern for them. May God comfort and keep you all.

    I want to extend to you and the family my deepest condolense for your loss. As you grieve the loss of your love one, it is my hope that you are able to draw comfort and strength from God's word. Some of the promises God has in store for us is found in your bible at John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; and Revelation 21:3,4. Grieving the loss of someone who is very dear to you will no doubt take time. But as each day passes, reflecting on the memories you shared and meditating on those promises found in the bible, will give you a hope and the strength to keep going. With deepest sympathy

    To the family of Mrs. Williams: I wanted to send my deepest condolences to your family. Please keep the memories of Mrs. Williams alive, this can bring you great comfort. Mrs. Williams is not suffering but is asleep in death waiting to hear Jesus voice; ( John 5: 28 & 29 ). We can see Mrs. Williams again right here on this earth but under different conditions; ( Psalms 37: 9, 10, 11 & 29 ). Please read these Scriptures in your Bible; they can bring you great comfort until the fulfillment of them. Love,
