Thank you all re: Dad's declining

To all:

Thanks to all of you for your support regarding my father's illness & death. His final day was when I received the support I needed.

We've had our service & interment yesterday. We've done all the cleaning of his apt & now I'm going through pictures.

Such good memories.

Sharlee

Sharlee,

I just made a new post with this poem. Wanted to make sure you saw it. It's helped myself, friends, and family for MANY a year now!

When I Am Gone
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
