  1. 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’s 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.

  2. My condolences for the loss of your loved one. Be Proud of your loved one for their service and sacrifices they made to preserve our Country’s Freedom. Stand down and rest in eternal peace,your mission is complete. We now stand for you as you once stood for us.
