  • I knew Mark in Germany...and in Vietnam...

    I knew Mark in Erlangen, Germany when we were young soldiers stationed together before we received orders to Vietnam, and we were together at Fort Lewis, Washington when we took "jungle training". We were in different units in Vietnam but we periodically saw each other. I knew him before he married Carol, and I knew him after he married Carol. I never met Carol but I know he loved her tremendously, and they're both in my memory.

    Dear SGT Mark Stanton Lutes, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Do not stand at my grave and weep

    Posted on 3/9/06 - by Bob Ross
    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 sun 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.

    Mary Frye – 1932
