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.

Coincidence

I went to the wall today. My name is Sergeant Jeremy Blankenship. I took a few pictures and was not even looking for Blankenships but right in the middle of the one picture I posted on Facebook was Jewell Blankenship. I thought that was weird.

BLANKENSHIPS ON THE WALL

I am the daughter of Major Leroy I. Blankenship, KIA 1 Apr 69. Family history says that all Blankenships in the United States are descended from one common ancestor who immigrated from England to Virginia as an indentured servant in the early 1600's. As such, all 15 men on the Wall with the surname Blankenship are distant cousins. If you knew Jewell or are related to him, you are welcome to contact me.
