Remembering Billy W Addis

I have good memories of Billy. We left Fort Gordon together in 1966. Got on a boat in NY and headed for Germany. We were stationed together in an armored battalion in Munich. It was a long time ago but I remember Billy being great guy and friend.

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 always be with us....
