Khia was the youngest child of a fellow soldier my spouse worked with in Mankato, MN.

Khia Backlund was 10 years old when our Lord called her home. She died of leukemia at the Univ. of Minnesota. She was a beautiful child who loved balloons. During the 14 months of her illness, she remained strong. She resisted giving in. Her spirit was boundless. She lived her short life gracefully & she never complained. On a beautiful autumn day, she did not ask her mother, "Is there a God?" Instead she pointed to the sky and asked, "Is He there, or there or over there?"

Khia's parents and brother said she died with a smile on her lips. She was not afraid. At her funeral her brother reached into a basket and handed a flower to each child that passed by her casket to say goodbye.

Khia was a winner, who took great delight in life. She is deeply missed by her parents; Mike and Jan Backlund, her brother Karsten, and many friends & classmates.

Rest in heavenly peace, sweet Khia.

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 upon 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 that swift uplifting 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.
