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 glint on snow ...

I am the sunlight on ripened grain ... I am the gentle autumn rain

When you wake in the morning hush ... I am the swift, uplifting rush ... Of quiet birds in circling flight ... I am the soft starlight at night

Do not stand at my grave and weep ... I am not there, I do not sleep ... Do not stand at my grave and cry ... I am not there, I did not die

An Inspirational Poem by Mary Frye (1932)


Tilly Ba Lou products are often purchased specifically for the sympathy market. The most popular items being "Baby Angels", "Peace and Love Doves" and "Two Hearts One Love" hangers. Our products are often used on graves, especially at special anniversaries ...and are frequently purchased as gifts for the bereaved, again not just at the time of the funeral itself, but a different piece in memory year upon year.

Although death is the only certainty in life, seldom does that thought ease the pain for those left behind. We believe personally that the best we can do in offering our services to the bereaved, is to do so with love and compassion … if we seek to work wholly from this internal space, then we believe that everything else will fall into place ... and the love and compassion will extend beyond the realms of our physical creations, to play some small part in the overall healing process.

there are angels among us
we can't always see them … but we don't always look
if the eyes are blind
one must look with the heart
