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.

Remebering a Hero

I served with Rick in the First flight platoon of the 176th. I arrived in Jan of 1969 and was supposed to take over as the Crew Chief (C.E.) on 999 when he DEROSed. He was always there to help the new guys and I sometimes think about what he taught me and believe he is one of the reasons I remained in the Maintenance field and lasted as long as I did.
RIP Brother RIP!
