There are over 3,000 books in My Sentimental Library. But all we see are empty bookshelves for now.
Oct 17, 1975—July 2, 2014
In time, My Sentimental Library will become a family memorial of sorts, commemorating the life of Jamie DeJaynes, the late husband of my daughter, Anita DeJaynes; and the father of four of my grandchildren:
and Noah, five.
I am with you still — 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 sweet uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone—
I am with you still in each new dawn.
