"Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep - 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."

She was an avid listener of VOWR and she loved to call in and speak to her special friends there everyday. She loved her family in Avondale and she always spoke of the kindness of her nephews that they gave her everytime she was there. Mom opened her heart to many people in her lifetime and she was such a kind hearted woman to all that knew her. Her memory of life's events and "who was who" was unbelievable. She will be greatly missed by all, but we are glad that she is no longer in any pain. And we are to be sure that she is an angel looking down on us and smiling,"It's OK now, I am at peace and I am no longer afraid."

WHITE (Billard), Anne - 84, of Massachusetts, formerly of Port-aux-Basques, Newfoundland. Passed away on February 3, 2009 after a brief illness. Anne, the second of nine children born to the late Victor Llewellyn Billard and Josie (Jeans) of Channel, NL, started her career in education early. Having skipped two grades, Anne received her teaching certificate and taught locally in Port-aux-Basques and the surrounding area for several years. She married the young principal, Eric S. White. Fourteen months later, Eric was tragically killed in a car accident. Although his untimely death was devastating to her, three months later she gave birth to a daughter, Nancy. Anne never remarried.
Anne taught in the Yukon Territories and eventually attended Boston University where she earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Education. She became an Assistant Professor in Education at Memorial University in St. John's and taught there for two years. (1956-57) Anne moved back to Massachusetts, where she helped pioneer a new remedial reading program in the Newton School system. She was one of four specialists teaching in the 26 elementary schools. For over 30 years, Anne taught in Newton and was a dedicated and compassionate advocate of children.
Anne was a strong, independent woman, who was an avid reader and loved to travel. She should be remembered for her tremendous faith in God, despite the challenges she encountered. Anne courageously lived for seven years with Alzheimer's disease. Her legacy to her family is her faith, humility and compassion. Her greatest joy was her three grandchildren, twins Eric and Rachel, 19, and Travis, 17. Anne leaves her daughter and son-in-law Nancy (White) and William F. Lynch of Hampstead, NH; her three grandchildren and her five remaining siblings: Dorothy Eastman, Virginia Beach, VA; Robert Billard, Dieppe, NB; Alice Pike, Eastern Passage, NS; Maxwell Billard, Foxtrap, NL; Laura Tevault, Indianapolis, IN, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
