Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep 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.




I’m a widower, artist and a hopeful writer and a pacifist by nature. This coming August of 2012 would have marked our 27th wedding anniversary, but she passed away on her birthday from cancer. However I now realize what was is no more and only the future remains. Like Jesus once said many years ago and I hope I don’t miss-quote…Let the dead bury the dead.

Since Leah’s passing many things have transpired…in August of 2009 I met a very sweet and wonderful lady named Jan…she and I hit it off immediately. Life once again seemed good and worth living and we were happy. However as life is sometimes misfortune struck again when she suffered a massive brain aneurism and almost died. Nonetheless that did not negate my love for her and it grows stronger each day that passes. Now I too have cancer and have undergone treatment. I pray for a positive outcome and a long healthy life with my Jan.

After Leah’s passing I thought I could never love that deeply again, but I was wrong. I now love Jan as much as I have ever loved anyone. God is good, and second chance at perfect love is a reality. Both Jan and I are active in animal rescue and have taken many off the streets and provided them shelter and love. For you see…LOVE is the greatest gift of all…Unfortunately many fail to see its full potential. If I should never utter another word after this…my heart would say love everything and everyone with your whole being…God Bless you all.
