I give you this one thought to keep
I am with you still- 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 mornings hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone-
I am with you still- in each new dawn.
The family would like to thank the staff of Harwood Manor for the care provided to Russell since 2012, and to Eternal Memories for providing their cremation services, their professional assistance, and their kindness during this time of sadness.
Funeral Arrangements have been entrusted to Eternal Memories Funeral Service & Crematorium.
