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.

Until Fiddlers Green

Think of you often, mention you when talking to others about Healeys. My Healey has been rebuilt, looks good as new. Yours was special the white with red interior. That first rally you talked me into is burnt into my memory, getting stuck in ditch until farmer pulled my Healey out with his tractor. You may have helped if you had stopped laughing. 52 years, likely seeing you all too soon on the Green, keep the beer cold.

My Stick buddy at Rucker

Loren and I were stick buddies at Rucker. He frequently fell asleep on night flights while the navigator. Ended up about two miles in the Gulf one night. Tried to catch a baby skunk one night - came by my apartment about midnight to see what could be done about the smell before he returned to the barracks. We raced from Rucker to California - my Corvette and his leaky Healey. Hours of rain through Louisiana. Had to stop twice to bail water from his car. We flew to Vietnam together and hung out for about two weeks waiting for our assignment. We went different ways. Last time I saw him. My wife sent us both care packages while in Nam. She was notified of his death. She told me. I think of him and our adventures frequently. Don Emlay ā€œCā€ company, 229th AHB, 1st Cav

Miss You Brother

Remember last night at Rucker after Grad, two walking dui trying to drive your Healey back to the barracks from the O-Club. You had gas & brake - I had steering wheel and handbrake. Don't think we made it out of first gear. Still think about you and I driving our Healeys around trying to impress the southern bells during flight school.
