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 in the snow. I am the sunlight 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 circled flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand by my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
I’m deeply saddened by your loss and pray that you’ll find comfort. Let your mother’s love be your strength for it’s the kind of love that is never ending. I feel blessed that you all are in my life. With deepest sympathy, Jeannette Thomas

To the entire Belli family, I just found out about your mother today. I don’t always have time to read the paper. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. I’ll never forget how kind Bill was when my mother passed away. It was during the termite basketball season and he was so kind. I also understand he gave a wonderful eulogy. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. It’s so hard to lose a mother and grandmother. Time will ease the pain but the hurt never goes away. Penny
Dear Paul and family, We are very sorry to hear of your mothers passing. Please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers. Bill and Paulette
Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, but only one mother in the whole world. Missing you………….
If of thy mortal good Thou art beref And of they slender store two loaves alone to thee are left, Sell one and with thy dole buy Hyacinths to feel thy soul…… LoVe YoU sOOOO mUcH….
