Goodbye

This afternoon my uncle passed away. While it was something that my family had all been expecting for a rather long time, it was still sad and bittersweet. I will be eternally grateful that my mom, sister, and I were able to be with my aunt when it happened and that she didn't have to be alone.
"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."
Rest in Peace Uncle Jimmy. Love you always.
