  • Mama Joan was a Special Lady. She gave me love and guidance when I needed it. The world lost an incredible woman. Michelle, Aaron, Heather, Jeff and family you are all in my thoughts ..

    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.

  • We are so sorry about your loss. May the Gods of all comfort continue to be with you and your family during this difficult time. We all look forward to a time when death will be no more- Rev 21:4. Our prayers are with you.
