Basic Training Together

Doug and I were both drafted in 1969 and went to basic training together. Even though we lived near each other we had never met until in the Army. I remember how he was very nervous about our situation. We became friends in basic, but never saw each other again after that and I was shocked to learn of his death when I got out of the Army.

honoring you just over 50 years since you died.....

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.
