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 sunlight 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....

HMDC 2-66

Duffy was one of six of us as 2LTs who were selected for a special assignment as GO Aides prior to starting the Heavy Mortar and Davy Crockett Course at Ft Benning. Duffy will always be remembered for his great sense of humor coupled with his strong sense of duty. We only knew each other for those eight short weeks but I know he lives on in he memories of Lts. Baraniack, Kratzenberg, Bower and the other who served with him at the start of our duty to our great country. I visit his name each year on Memorial Day and leave him with my prayers and thanks for his friendship.
