Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousands words 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 mornings 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 didn't die.

We hold the Hardwicke Family in our thoughts and prayers.

Scott and Melinda Barnum.

Larry and I conversed on email quite a bit and passed a lot of jokes and political views. But the best memory we had was the haunted house we did while at VR-52 at Selfridge ANG Base.

A final salute to a friend and a proud American. Rest well with the Lord, Larry. He welcomes you home.
