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....

Remember Elmer Aldous

I met Elmer as students at Utah State. We got together every evening at the Tally Ho, a small coffee shop in Logan, UT. He never mentioned that his real name was Lilo , but he was so quiet, and had to be dragged into our conversations. Learned that his family owned a motel in Evanston, WY, and was proud of the rodeo belt buckles he won as a bull-rider in rodeos. He used to hunt elk and antelope back home in Wyo. He always drank tea, and would swirl his teabag around, as he listened to us talk, quietly looking down at it. He was so pleasant and quiet that I could never imagine him as a soldier. I heard that he was walking "point", when he was killed by a mine.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Lilo Elmer Aldous, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
