A Poem included in her program.
Do not stand by my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am a diamond glint on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am a gentle Autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight
I am the soft starshine at night
Do not stand by my grave and cry
I am not there...I did not die.
We love you and you will be dearly missed!

IN LOVING MEMORY OF Diana Tolman Leatherwood 12-25-44 to 5-8-92
It has been a year now since you left us. We miss you so very much. We take time to remember for our hearts hold many memories-Golden Moments that will always be part of us. All it takes is a little quiet, a little reflection to remember your happy laughter, and your beautiful ways. So much that was precious was lost when you left us. So sleep well our precious daughter, till we meet again. We love you yesterday, today, tomorrow and always.
Love forever, Mom, Dad and Family.
Diana is my first cousin. We were only a year apart in age. I have so many special memories of Diana. Sleepovers at her house. I do remember she was not happy with being born on Christmas, because it seemed like her Birthday was not special. Although I know it was very special to her beloved family. I miss you dear cousin and you shall be in all of our hearts forever. Rest in Sweet Eternal Peace.
