Georgia, asked that the following be included in her obituary: "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 glint on 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 rush of quiet birds in circled flight; I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there; I did not die."
