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

Warnell Aten- Remembered By Saint Anne's High School

Warnell Aten was raised in Beaverville, Illinois and graduated from Saint Anne's Community High School in the nearby town of Saint Anne in 1966. After high school he attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale for about one year. He enlisted in the Navy and served for over a year at the Key West Naval Hospital in Florida before being called on to serve in Vietnam. Warnell Aten attained the rank of 3rd Class Petty Officer as a Hospital Corpsman. He was assigned to assist the 3rd Marines and died in Vietnam on February 19, 1969, about one month after his arrival. Later, a Bachelor Enlisted Quarters was constructed at the Key West Naval Hospital. The quarters are named after Warnell Aten- Aten Hall.
Thanks for the school picture goes to Saint Anne's High School Principal Ramie Kolitwenzew, and the students and staff of the school. A special thanks to Warnell's classmates of 1966 and his college friend Pat McGill Hastings.
