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

Marine Dies 10 Days After Viet Arrival

Mrs. Louise Piotrowicz received a letter this week from her son, David, 19. "Have arrived in beautiful Vietnam," he wrote.
The Defense Department said Marine Pfc. Piotrowicz, who lived at 3343 N. 5th st., stepped on a mine December 15 and was killed. He had arrived in Vietnam on December 5.
Piotrowicz, a 1967 graduate of Cardinal Dougherty High School, was the fiance of Joanne LePiere, of 3746 N. 7th st., and they had planned to marry when his tour of duty was completed next December.
Besides his mother, Mrs. Louise, he is survived by a sister, Carol, 21, and a brother, Richard, 18.

Semper Fidelis, Marine!
