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 sun 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.

May God hold you in the palm of his hand until we meet again my dearest cousin ♾

I am so happy that I had the opportunity to stay with Gloria, Jim and the family back in 1985. I have wonderful memories of working and playing with them. Sequoia National Park, Dinky Creek and Gloria’s wonderful cooking. I wish we all had more time with her, another memory, another story, another meal, but it just doesn’t work that way. I’ll see you in my memories.

Gloria was to Jim and her family the strong cup of coffee that we all appreciate first thing in the morning. Gloria was Gloria the person who would go out of her way for family and friends as standing in lines for Cabbage Patch Dolls.
She will be sorely missed by her loving husband, family and friends.
