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 the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning 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.
A graveside service will be held in Malad, Idaho on Friday, May 01, 2009 at the Malad City Cemetery at 1:00 p.m. A celebration of Sharon’s life will be held on Saturday, May 02, 2009 at the Sheraton City Centre, Salt Lake City, Utah from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.
