My aunt M.R. was one of a kind. She was a beautiful classy lady who enjoyed the finer things life. M.R. enjoyed music, beautiful flowers, late night Chinese food with her husband John. M.R. always brought joy to those she met. Her soft warm gentle eyes always followed by a big bright beautiful smile.

Do not stand By my grave, and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep— I am the thousand winds that blow I am the diamond glints in snow I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle, autumn rain. As you awake with morning’s hush, I am the swift, up-flinging rush Of quiet birds in circling flight, I am the day transcending night. Do not stand By my grave, and cry— I am not there, I did not die.
