Michelle ~ Ma Belle

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 rain.
When you awaken in the morning 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.

~ Mary Elizabeth Frye

On June 20th, 2009 Rideau lost our beloved Michelle Verville.

Mother, daughter, wife… true friend and colleague for over 41 years.

She is in a higher place. May she rest in eternal peace.

We love you Michelle… now and forever.

Although I never met Michelle I could see how much people cared about her even just being at Rideau for one day.
