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

Visit to the Wall

Our first trip to the Wall in June was even more meaningful than I expected. When I touched Bob's name I felt him touching back across time. I left a shadowbox filled with special memories & a red rose. One is his best Marine friends, Chuck Roth,& his wife met my husband & I there. Chuck will be reading Bob's name at the Reading of the Names Ceremony at the Wall on November 8th. I think it is so beautiful that Bob is still touching lives.

I would love to hear from anyone who knew Bob. I would especially like to hear from Tim Haney, a comrade of Bob's, who wrote me a letter in July of 1968 that I still treasure.

Sincerely,
Judy Stanek Gurr

Bob Stanek - Bravo 1/5

I often think of Bob. He was my best friend in Viet Nam. We served together through a lot of hell over seven months. He was a good man and the best Marine I ever knew. I couldnt believe it when they told me he was KIA. We had just spoken ten minutes earlier and were going to get together for a cup of coffee after we secured a village. His loss was sudden and still bothers me to this day. He paid the ultimate price and I will always do what I can to keep his memory alive. May he rest in peace always.
