Shawnee N. Mitchell-Wright

In remembrance of a friend newly lost.

"In the dark immensity of night
 I stood upon a hill and watched the light
 Of a star,
 Soundless and beautiful and far.
A scientist standing there with me
Said, “It is not the star you see,
But a glow
That left the star light years ago.”
People are like stars in a timeless sky;
The light of a good person’s life shines high,
Golden and splendid
Long after his brief earth years are ended."
— Grace V. Watkins
