In Memory of Barbara Nelson (Steinforth)

September 13, 1956 to July 3, 2010

This page is dedication to my sweet Mommy whom I miss more than words could ever describe. She was an amazing spirit and an unbelievably strong woman. She fought for her life with absolutely every breath that she had in her.  Yet, unfortunatley she lost that battle.  I can only pray to be as great of a mother, grandmother, aunt, daughter and sister as she was.  Her love for all of us will live on forever as we struggle to get past our great loss.

 

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 awake in the morning's hush

I am the swift uplifting rush,

Of quiet birds in circling flight.

I am the soft starlight at night,

Do not stand at my grave and cry

I am not there, I did not die.
