This submission was GREAT, but longish-- almost the whole story-- but I trimmed it to this wonderful concluding verse--Donna Farley)
Here's a quote from a Debi Gliori picture book, she writes and illustrates and is based in Edinburgh - my hero!
"No Matter What" by Debi Gliori
'Small, look at the stars - how they shine and glow, but some of those stars died a long time ago.
still they shine in the evening skies
love, like starlight, never dies.'
Makes me well up, every - single - time. :-)
