Do not stand by my grave and weep,
For I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond’s glint on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
In the soft hush of the morning light
I am the swift bird in flight.
Do not stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there,
I did not die.

Although we didn't reconnect until I was in my late 20's, Dad was a kind and loving father and welcomed me and all of my children into his home with open arms. I can't express in words how much he inspired me and how much I looked up to him. He was my Dad. He was, and will always be, my hero. I will miss him dearly.

In his final letter to the Scouts, Baden-Powell wrote:

...I have had a most happy life and I want each one of you to have a happy life too. I believe that God put us in this jolly world to be happy and enjoy life. Happiness does not come from being rich, nor merely being successful in your career, nor by self-indulgence. One step towards happiness is to make yourself healthy and strong while you are a boy, so that you can be useful and so you can enjoy life when you are a man. Nature study will show you how full of beautiful and wonderful things God has made the world for you to enjoy. Be contented with what you have got and make the best of it. Look on the bright side of things instead of the gloomy one. But the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people. Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best. 'Be Prepared' in this way, to live happy and to die happy - stick to your Scout Promise always - even after you have ceased to be a boy - and God help you to do it

Mr. Maloukis was my Scoutmaster and so much more. He exemplified what Sir Baden Powell was looking for in a scout and a leader of scouts. May he rest in peace. Two

Heaven’s Gunner
by Tim Maloukis

The clouds aren’t as white, the sky not as blue
Your brother warriors of this they all knew
You traveled miles, destinations often unknown
We were all joyous when once again you arrived home.

Your travels took you high through the grey and the blue
Until today when the heavens opened and took you through
The clouds won’t be as white, the sky not as blue
Until in the future all your loved ones will once again
Fly with you.

I love you, Dad.
Tim & Linda Maloukis
