Wittkop Donald J., age 50, of St. Paul. Beloved son, brother, uncle and friend who died peacefully at home surrounded by his family and friends on June 21 after a brief battle with lung cancer. Preceded in death by brother, Dennis. Survived by parents, Virgil & Pat Wittkop; brothers, Larry (Leah), Rocky (Pat), Mike (Valda) and Wayne (Eileen); sisters, Kathy (Mike), Karen (Ted) and Wanda (Eric); many nieces and nephews and good friends, Lyle Bruska and Maggie Lindorfer. Let us not cling to mourning, do not stand on 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 opened grain, I am the gentle autumn's 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 on my grave and cry. I am not there I did not die.
