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.

As long as you are remembered you will never die....

I was with you

Bill, It has been nearly 50 years since that fateful day. I will never forget talking to you minutes before the crash. I got on one helicopter and you got on the one behind me. I got the news when landing on the Fire Support Base. We became good friends as you were from Ramsey, Illinois and I was from Brownstown. I remember you singing to us and you really did sound like Elvis. You loved to play the guitar and sing Elvis songs. I have not been to the Wall but hope to get there one day soon. Until then, buddy, rest in peace. I will always remember you.

Now I Know

Billy,

After so many years I was the first one in the family to be able to go to the Wall and find you. I remember crying there for a long time, feeling like I owed that to you. Now, here in Afghanistan, I get it. Our family will never forget you...
