26: Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, my slumber’s deep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the mountain capped with snow, I am the laughter in children's eyes, I am the newborn baby’s cries, I am the rainbow o’er the Falls, I am the echo through the halls, Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die. I live within your heart As I did right from the start I live within your mind Two hearts intertwined, Do not stand at my grave and cry, As you go on, I will never die.
27: Her last day home with us was May 17, 1986
