Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain…on the other side of darkness.
Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms. I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.
Do not weep for me, for I am cradled in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.
Do not weep for me, for I am within you; I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.
Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me… with a smile and a sigh.

Thank you for helping me become the person I am today. In your own way.
You taught me to be strong.
You taught me to be determined.
You taught me to keep learning.
You taught me to fight for what I believe in.
You taught me I always have a choice, even when you didn’t.
You taught me that when you learn to love yourself your whole world will change.
You taught me that the most important thing in life is to help others.
I know you are now enjoying the peace and freedom you always dreamed of.
