Reviews for Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep

'When my son very sadly passed away, I found this poem on the internet and loved the words so much that I decided to read it after the funeral service. The congregation gathered outside the church and doves were released as I read the words. It was a beautiful experience on an unbearably sad day, so when I found this little book on Amazon I had to buy it. It is so beautifully illustrated and I frequently read it and think of my wonderful son.'

Amazon Reviewer 

'When I saw this book, I thought what a lovely little treasure. The illustrations are very uplifting. It is food for the soul. Being a spiritual person I find this book a little piece of calm in times of sadness. The thought of losing someone who is very dear to you causes sadness, but hopefully the words and pictures in this book will help you to see that although your loved ones are no longer in the physical world they are never really far away from you. I hope this little book will be of great comfort to you in your time of loss.'

Amazon Reviewer 

'I always have a copy of this book by my bed. It is only a small book but so uplifting and a source of great comfort when someone dies. For those times in life when you just don't know what to say, give this book.'

Amazon Reviewer
