I remember one of the shrines by Amy's house in the days after she had passed, that moved just about everyone. It's was a framed poem, a rather known one, surrounded by red roses and candles. People knelt, read it, cried and took photos of it.

The poem goes like this:

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


I also remember two beautiful quotes, from some of the many notes.

"Fly with the angels darling, you sang like one".

"To the world you were a person, but to us you were the world".


May God rest her soul in eternal peace. The queen of Camden will never be forgotten.

I love the poem , its reminds us all that although we may lose someone , they are still all around us.
Today 2 years ago my life changed. i had always loved Amy's music but after she passed it became something different
for me.. Amy has become my angel ... I think about her , want to see pictures & sing her praises when given the opportunity.
I miss you Amy Jade , You were given a voice that touches my soul, You will be with us forever thru the music and your
personality & style made a mark on this world... I light a candle today for her , i want her to know i care about her & when i see a butterfly i always think " thats Amy , beatuiful & free now"...Love Ya Amy....

i remember this poem being used in a late episode of prime suspect and the way the girl expressed it was pretty beautiful, lovely eulogy

"sometimes I go about in pity for myself,
and all the while a great wind is bearing me across the sky...
"

I wanna keep you here laying next to me
sharin our love between the sheets
