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

RE: Poem

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. . .
