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.

A kind, handsome young man, always remembered

I remember Richard, so handsome in his uniform, walking around to every pew shaking hands and greeting friends in our country church one Sunday morning in the weeks before he returned to Vietnam Nam, never to return. His beautiful Mom and sweet siblings so proud. He had the biggest smile. He will live in my memory always. My love to his sister, Dianna, and his family.
