Sorry I've not been here. I am so overwhelmed with my siblings, Mom, and the loss of two friends in one week...I can barely get on the computer.

At any rate, for the families of above, I'd put this following poem into word, I've had since my Dad died in '74 and wanted to place it here for your current or future use. It's about the best I can do right now.

Thinking of you!


When I Am Gone by

Rose Standish Kellogg

When I am Gone, think tenderly

Of me, but do not mourn, for I,

In new found immortality,

Move onward through the spirit zone

From time into Eternity

A mortal, I was confident

That to my soul when leaving earth

Would open a new life: rebirth,

Expanding, ever-widening spheres

Beyond the dreams in earth-bound years

So do not sing a requiem

For me. I live. I have gone home.

Sing me a glad, triumphant song

I'm new to this forum, but I wanted to send my sympathy. I can't imagine how much grief you're dealing with right now!

Hugs to you. . .
