REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR LELAND EMANUEL HAMMOND

Remembrance

Mac was the nicest and most handsome cousin! He was so much fun to hang out with. He and his brother Charlie, my sister Donna, and myself used to play a lot outside when we were much younger. We would dig up night crawlers in the old abandoned cemetery in the woods and go fishing. We liked to make up stories about a run down old house in the woods across from their home in Sumter. Mac was so cool and even to this day I miss him terribly and talk about him as if her were still with us. His mother, Lydia Hammond is still alive as of this posting, and still talks about him with so much love and sadness. She is a very Christian lady and knows that one day she will be reunited with Mac and his dad, Leland. Love you so much Mac, and thank you for your ultimate sacrifice to our country. Mac is resting in Evergreen Cemetery in Sumter, South Carolina.

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.

Mary Frye – 1932
