MacDONALD, Jane Isabel
In loving memory of our mother
and grandmother Jane,
who passed away September 27, 1990.
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 diamond glints on snow,
I am sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's 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.
- Always in our thoughts, Sandy (Talie), Jane,
Liz (Wayne), Malcolm, Nancy, Heather, Kim,
Tami and grandchildren
and great-grandchildren.
