Happy Birthday Daddy Kewl.

We love you.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am in the softly falling snow.
I am in the gentle showers of rain,
I am in the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the gentle rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am in the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

~Mary Elizabeth Frye

Thanks ladies. We had lots of birthday celebrations, including a singing birthday candle that WOULD NOT STOP! Heat activated - and after 2 hours in the freezer it was still going strong!

thinking of you.I carry this verse in my purse always ...
Daddy Kewl made his mark I see even the freezer couldn't keep his from celebrating.

I hope you had a 'peace'filled day too Al.
