Dear Kurt, friends and family of Sophia,
We send our sincere condolences with prayers for the presence of God to accompany you with loving compassion during this time of grief and loss. Here is a poem – a reminder of eternal life – for you from the Earth & Spirit Mission Group of Seekers Church:

Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep
by Author Unknown
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.
