I love this poem: 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.

We send our thoughts and prayers at this sad time. Louva was such a giving person and was our friend every since 1986 when we moved to Fort Wayne. We enjoyed New Year's Eve celebrations with her and Stan, gatherings at the lake, and lunches at the Towne House. She will be missed by many. With sympathy, Judy and Al Kuelling

Dear Needham family, Just a note to say how sorry I am to hear of your mother's passing. My mother died May 8th at 98. They lived a long and fruitful life and I celebrate as they are now with their husbands reunited. Praying this finds all of you well. Sincerely, Nancy
