“Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep” by Mary Elizabeth Frye


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.



Alison asked that you please refrain from sending flowers, instead she would rather have you donate the money to a local charity, forest preserve, pet shelter, conservation or nature group, clinic, etc.


Below is one of the many charity rating sites out there, to help you figure out a good one.


Below are some links of charities we suggest to honor Alison, as she was very passionate with her love of nature, animals and art.
