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.
Lawrence Moody, son of the late Henry Moody, Sr. and Zoleatha Scott Moody, began his journey through life on Saturday, November 24, 1949 in Northampton County, North Carolina.
Lawrence was educated in public schools of Northampton County; graduating from Gumberry High School, where he proudly maintained being on the Honor Roll. After graduation, he was inducted in the United States Army, being stationed in Fort Dix, New Jersey. He served his country from March 1970 to November 1971; when he was Honorably Discharged of his duties. During this time of service, Lawrence completed course studies and training for Military Police Personnel. He also received a National Defense Service Medal and commendations for Sharpshooter 45 Pistol and Expert M14.
Lawrence further his education by earning two Associate Degrees; one in Business Administration and another in Preliberal Arts. Upon returning to his roots, he worked various jobs; before retiring from West Fraser Industries of Seaboard, North Carolina, with 25 years of dedicated service.
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me”. With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away, Although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay. A Golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. On Thursday, January 28, 2021, while in the serenity of his home, Lawrence peacefully departed this world and entered into eternal rest.
Our family is a circle of strength and love; with every birth and every union, the circle of love grows - every trial faced together makes the circle grow stronger. We who remain struck by the bitter pain of death, but are assured by the promise of God; that He would wipe all tears from our eyes: his daughter, LaShonda Moody Caine (Guy) of Garysburg, NC; his grandchildren, Tyrell Moody, Khalil Moody Goodwin, and Terrance Anderson; his devoted caregivers: his sister and brother-in-law, Evelyn Moody Peebles (Alexander) of Garysburg, NC; his brother, Henry Moody, Jr. (Earnestine) of Pleasant Hill, NC; his nieces, Kim Broady, Carol Broady, Alexia Peebles, Tonya Peebles Herring, Keisha Johnson and Marchelle Hardy-Robinson; his nephews, Jerod Johnson, Antoin Peebles, Tyree Moody and Minister Dexter Hardy; a host of other relatives and friends.
