Her Greatest accomplishment in this life was loving, caring for, and serving others, especially those who were in need.
Her greatest joy came from time spent with her children and grandchildren.
Her greatest love was Jesus Christ.
Her greatest fellowship and comfort came from her church, Graham Presbyterian Church, and from her family, friends and neighbors.
She leaves them all with this request:
“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 awake in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift up-flinging rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry… .
I am not there. I did not die.”
