The family of Maria Cyrzan sadly announce her passing, which occurred on May 15, 2020 in Penticton, British Columbia at the age 74 years.
I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the way of happy times, and laughing times, and bright and sunny days.
Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond's glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grains.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in 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.
