In Memoriam of Andrey Stenin

Do Not Stand By My Grave And Weep

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 sun on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn 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.

Hundreds of mourners paid their last respects to slain photojournalist Andrey Stenin on Friday. The two-hour memorial service was held at the offices of news agency Rossiya Segodnya, formerly RIA Novosti, which employed the photographer. The remains of Stenin, who was killed in eastern Ukraine, were found in the Donetsk region two weeks ago but were only identified through DNA testing on Wednesday.
