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.

50 Years Ago

Mike, you were my big brother, my protector and friend. I can't believe you've been gone for 50 years today. You ARE always missed. Cousins, brother, sister, friends - no one has forgotten you. But, thank God, you are with our mother, father, cousins, aunts & uncles and all of those we've loved and lost over the years. I patiently wait for my turn to go Home to rejoice with everyone.

From a fellow Redleg

Bill and I were classmates at Fort Sill’s Artillery Officer Candidate School (Class 36A-67). He was a stand-up guy.

I’ve had 50 more years on the planet than Bill.

This disparity brings the tragedy of the war that we experienced home to me in yet another way this night before Memorial Day.
