Non-Combat. Accident

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters.

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 rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die

Gone but not forgotten

Just wanted to let you know that you will always be remembered, not only in the hearts and minds of those that knew you, but here on our 2/77 site and your sacrifice cherished by us along with your memory!
Rest in peace, brother
