    • POEM: Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye (11/19/2009 12:28:00 PM)

      Anyone who has lost a loved one should read this poem. I first encountered this when my father was killed in an accident in 1996. I was 24 at the time and he was 60. We were just getting to be friends again and then he was gone. On Friday, November 13,2009 a good friend of mine died while out on an afternoon run. He was 35 and is survived by a wife and 3 children under the age of 6. I circulated this poem among some other friends and am printing it and sending it to his wife. I hope it brings her some of the same comfort it brought me. Luke, you will be missed.
