    Robert, you will always be a true hero because you answered freedom’s call. I can’t begin to imagine the hardships you endured or what it felt like to leave the ones you loved and cared about most. My heart goes out to all that knew and loved you. I am a student in Gridley involved in the Gridley High School Posting Project and want you to know that you will always be in my heart and will be remembered as a leader and an example for future generations. Thank you!

    Sincerely,
    Jen Steffen

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 10/2/03 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
    It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for family, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. 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 hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

    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 hush,
    I am the swift, uplifting rush of
    quiet birds in circled flight,
    I am the stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there, I did not die.
