Topic: HAPPY 80th TEDDY October 27th

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 sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's 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 stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.                   By Mary Elizabeth Frye

Oh Lainy, I just love the poems you post. I just wanted to wish Teddy a very Happy Birthday in heaven. I am sure he is up there having a grand time, but I'm sure he misses you and is always looking out for you. Hey Teddy, if you can hear me, Please come and visit Lainey. I know she would love to hear from you. Love and hugs to you, Lainy.

Re: HAPPY 80th TEDDY October 27th

Pam, too wierd. I heard from Teddy so much through the oldies station but had not heard any of our songs since August 20th on my Grandson's BDay. My son just spent 5 days with Robin and me and on Tuesday he made dinner at her place. I get in the car and "Theme from the Godfather" came on, one of his songs and on Wednesday I took the family to our favorite little Italian restaurant that Teddy loved. BTW we now call it 'our sacred restaurant' get in the car, turn on the oldies and our song came on, "When I Fall in Love". Oh, yeah, baby, I so believe!  This is the second Birthday since he passed and fortunately it is easier than the first.

Re: HAPPY 80th TEDDY October 27th

A man of many names, I like that! Sal, I really like that one. It sounds good! And Sardi, so if I turn up in Phoenix I know what car to look for now to see you! We do that here in Scotland as well a lot, call people by various names and nicknames. And if the name sticks then it can go on for years and years.
