Thinking of you

Every time that I drive through Strabane, I think of you and your family and of your service and ultimate sacrifice. I remember seeing your brother gather his books to leave school early because your family had just learned of your passing. I overheard two teachers talking about what had happened. I knew how devasted your family must have been. My great aunt, also of Strabane, lost her son in WWII and sadly mourned his loss until the day that she died. Even though I was in fifth grade I understood how your death could affect your family. I never knew you personally but always thought of you with such great respect. You are the soldier that I knew that fought in Viet Nam. I will never forget you and your service to our country.

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.

Always remembered

A young life cut short too soon that carried a huge impression in my life. We were all so young and thought we were invincible. His death brought home the fact that we weren't. Thank you so very much for your service.
