Turn Again to Life
by Mary Lee Hall
If I should die and leave you here a while,
be not like others sore undone,
who keep long vigil by the silent dust.
For my sake turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand
to do something to comfort other hearts than thine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
and I perchance may therein comfort you

My deepest sympathy. I graduated with Cindy and Tom and will always remember the love they had for each other even as young teenagers walking together in the school's hallway. Cindy would always talk to me about her family and the love she had for all of you. I lost my Mom the week before Christmas so I know what you are going through. She touched so many lives and her memory will last forever.

This always brought me peace, I hope it can bring you and your family some as well. Much love to you and your family, Gail and Rick Kattouf

Don''t stand by my grave and weep,
For I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint of snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn''s rain.

When you awaken in the morning, hush.
For I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circle flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand by my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die.

Tom and Anita, Bill and Irene,

This has been a difficult time for you and I extend my sincere condolences.

May the angels lead her into paradise; and may all the martyrs come forth to welcome her home; and may they lead her into the holy city, Jerusalem. May the angel chorus sing to welcome her, and like Lazarus, forgotten and poor, she shall have eternal rest.
