REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR RICHARD AUGUST HOSTIKKA
POSTED ON 12.6.2011

If I should die...remembrances foer CAPT. Richard August HOSTIKKA...who made the ultimate sacrifice!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchnace, may therein comfort you.

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

Fellow Army Captain

No one has passed this entry yet and then stopped to leave a message. That has now changed. I did not know Richard Hostikka, but I intend to find out something about him. We share the same first name, we were born within a week of each other in 1942, we were both Captains in the Army serving in Viet Nam at the same time. I left there less than a week before he was lost in early 1970. Rest in Peace, Richard. You are not forgotten! (I'll research CPT Hostikka and post another remembrance soon.)
