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

My wife and I offer our deepest condolences to the family of an American Hero. His service and sacrifice to our country to preserve our freedom is not and will not be forgotten. I wish him Fair Winds and Following Seas. Your mission here is completed. Rest in peace, we have the watch!

Joseph “Mustang” Bilodeau

Sailors pray,
for fair winds and a following sea
The smell of salt in the air,
the feel of their skin as it’s touched by the spray
An albatross soaring above,
dolphins in the ship’s wake at play
To witness a work of art that only God can create,
the sunset at the end of day
At night a million stars in the sky,
safe anchorage in an islands lee
When the time comes to die as for all it must,
to awake in Sailors Heaven where nothing ever rusts
And always there would be,
fair winds and a following sea

My wife and I wish to extend our condolences on your loss.

We stand with feet planted firmly on rich soil knowing what freedom is. Because of our veterans, I am free to honor God and country without persecution. Where there is injustice, I am free to fight. Where there is silence, I am free to speak. Where there is hate, I am free to love.

Your love one’s watch is over, may they rest peacefully in the arms of God.

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
