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 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

One of Philadelphia PA's 630 fallen sons.

Photo and article were taken from the Philadelphia Daily News of October 26, 1987. The special supplement entitled, 'SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY,' was published in conjunction with the dedication of the Philadelphia Viet Nam Memorial.

Diamond loved life and helping those in need, his mother recalled. He brought home stray cats and dogs while growing up, so it was no surprise when he wrote his parents that he wanted to bring home a Viet Nam orphan when his tour of duty was over. "I went to confession once and communion three times since I've been here," he wrote home. "Pray that I maintain my character and never allow myself to slip." The 1967 Cardinal Doughtery High School graduate worked as a shipping clerk for the Moyer clothing store until he was drafted into the Army in June of 1969. The 20-year-old private first class, a medical corpsman assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company of the 1st Battalion, 20th Infantry, Americal Division, died in Chu Lai, Quang Tin Province, on February 2, 1970. He was survived by his parents, two brothers and a sister.

Remembering Chick Diamond

I was a childhood friend of Chick Diamond.
We grew up in the same neighborhood of West Oak Lane. We use to play touch football with a bunch of guys from the neighborhood. We had some good times and I have fond memories of Chick.
