Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, Ido not sleep; I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glint on the snow. I am the sunlight onripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the morning. Hush.
I am the swift, uplifting rush.
Of quite birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep.
A private celebration of Mattie's life will be held at the United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at a later date with final farewell and resting place at Diamond Crest Cemetery next to her deceased husband.
