    Brother Jonny says:
    Read today by Rabbi Julie Kozlow at the Memorial Service for Sarah Patlak: Do Not Stand at My Grave & Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye 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 sun 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 circling flight. I am the soft star-shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die.
