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.

NavyCorps.man rememberance

I was Lt Griffis 's Corpsman In 1965-66 in 2/6 Marines . HE WAS ONE OF MY BEST MEMORIES WITH THE MARINES. He recuted me from a other company to run in a track and field day. We went through Land Mines warfare school. It was a pleasure knowing him. We(our platoon) went to the Island of Viegas and played war games against 2 battalions of Marines. The Marines never found us. (WE PLAYED VIET CONG). We would run at night and strick quickly a d run and hide durning the day. He was a great leader and good friend. 5/28/2021 I still think of him often.
