Sonnet dedicated to my dear friend Barbara written by Mary Frye
Do not stand by 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 mornings 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 by my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Barbara will not only live in our hearts but nature will send us signals that she is everywhere. I will always treasure our conversations and I will never forget that precious giggle. Thank you for bringing Buck ( Australian Shepherd ) into my life.
Terry, Larry , and Mary Im always near if you need a friend

I'm Richards cousin Jim. I've often tried to locate his family. Richards dad was my uncle Larry. I was in Vegas many years ago an went to your house. I was in the Marine Corps an stopped on my way to Minnesota. I would. Like to get in contact with the kids. I remember the girls. Hopefully they get this msg. I'm Jim OConnor.
