CARDS of THANKS For everyone who knew Ethel Howell: She gave me this poem many years ago, saying she felt it perfectly expressed her feelings about death and grief: "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." Anonymous A special thanks to the loving and caring people at Country Villa Center and Plumas District Hospital, and a special thanks to Dr. Price, her physician for many decades.
