"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 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 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."
Ms. Haynes, who was 48, spent her childhood as a resident of Minden and passed away quietly at Willis Knighton Bossier on Oct. 21, 2013 after a long battle with Leukemia.
