I am searching for a poem to print on a remeberance card for my grandmothers funeral. I would like something that reminds everyone of her and conveys that she is still here in all of us. She was the head of a large family about 60 people. She always wanted family to stick together and help each other. She was quite opiniated and spoke her mind. She was a leader in the community, the administrator of a nursing home for 30 years and the first female city commisioner in the city I live in. If anyone has a suggestion PLEASE PLEASE email me at the address below. I was just asked to do this for her funeral and only have 2 more days to find one.

Any help would be appreciated.

    I dont know if this helps but it helped me when I heard it

    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 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.

    Mary E. Frye
