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

The Philadelphia Inquirer - June 21, 1968

A Richmond soldier who wrote home that he thanked God he was still alive when so many of his buddies were not so lucky has been killed in action in Vietnam.
Sp/4 John J. Cimorelli, 21, son of Mrs. Jean Clanton, of 2056 E. Victoria st., and John J. Cimorelli, of Wenonah, N.J., who died Tuesday.
In one of his letters Sp/4 Cimorelli said he was going to Mass "to thank God for keeping me safe and sound."
The Army's official notice said he was wounded by fragments from an enemy rocket Saturday and died in an Army hospital on Tuesday.
He was a member of St. Joan of Arc Roman Catholic Church, where he had been a choir boy. He left Frankford High School to enlist in 1963, and re-enlisted in Germany in 1966.
He went to Vietnam on March 31. A twin brother, Francis, enlisted in the Army to join him and was discharged earlier this year after serving in Germany and Vietnam.
Also surviving is a sister, Rosemary, and a half brother, John Joseph McKenna.

One of Philadelphia PA's 630 fallen sons.

Photo and article were taken from the Philadelphia Daily News of October 26, 1987. The special supplement entitled, 'SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY,' was published in conjunction with the dedication of the Philadelphia Viet Nam Memorial.

Cimorelli attended Frankford High School and worked as a mail order clerk before enlisting in the Army in October 1963. The 22-year-old specialist four, a gunner, was stationed in Germany, where he re-enlisted, before going to Viet Nam in March 1968 and joining Company B of the 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry, 101st Airborne Division. Cimorelli was killed by hostile rocket fire on June 18, 1968. "John's death seems like I lost half of myself," said his twin brother, Francis, who himself had served in Germany, Korea and Viet Nam. Besides his brother, Cimorelli was survived by his mother, a sister and a half-brother.
