RIP POP - AU REVOIR POP

Farewell My Dear Pop
01.01.1925 - 02.04.2009
Derbyshire, England


~~~~~~~

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.

~ Mary Frye ~

I will always remember you with great fondness, grandpa.
Love,
Rosa xxx

  33. Deepest condolences. I lost my Dad two years ago, and not a day goes by that I don't recall some fond memory or tiny detail about him that makes me smile tearfully. Nothing prepares you for the loss of a parent. But remember: He'll always be with you. Always.
