This Production is dedicated to all of you
who ever have... are now... or ever will
learn to soar on the fragile wings of courage as you
do battle with the most dreaded of all enemies
' BIG BAD C'
Since Obviously I can't address all of you
I have chosen my sister of the heart
GOD'S OWN LITTLE WHISPERER
to represent everybody
Without Further Ado
Here is our own
MUCH ACLAIMED MORNING SONG
with a number chosen just for you
accompained by the
HOUSTON STRATFORD HIGH SCHOOL DANCERS
Please , please listen!
Mary Anne, my sweetest sister
Who dwells within my heart
To encourage you this evening
We come to do our part
Here in this room that love built
Painted pink... color of hope
Mary Anne I bring to you
Some words the poets wrote
Right now we know you're cancer free...
We sure hope you'll stay that way
We apoligize for tricking you

For you must know ...you can call on us
If ever the need arise
We're gathered tonight to cheer you on
Wipe the fear out of your eyes
Hope these words of inspiration
The ones you hear tonight
Will help you to gain courage
To continue with your fight
Just print them out they're yours to keep
In some pocket tucked away
Then if the going it gets rough
Just read them... hear them say
We're in this fight together
Victory within our sights
So just relax and please enjoy
This is your special night
Our first speaker is X Rifles
Who has travelled very far
To say to you these lovely words
For his sister at the Star.

My Dear Mary Anne....
I am very distressed to read this, BUT..... so very encouraged that the Doctors found the problem early...we all know early detection and early treatment are the best chance....I know this will be for you too.
Mary Anne..God Bless you and get better fast.
On and on the hours just flew
As they one by one stepped up
Now here's that girl you've grown
to love ... who always wakes you up
Esessential as morning coffee
Refreshing as morning rain
She has put a song within your heart
There it always will remain
Yes I know that Tiny Teddy
Is a daughter of your heart
She knew this night was just for you
So she wanted to take part
So she also brought you roses
When she came from far away
It's ok , go get your tissues out
Here's what she wants to say.
Mary Anne (my mama Sonshine) today is
a day I stand before you to show you
how much you are loved and cherished
You're my mother not by birth but by
heart and I love you dearly more then
words could possibly express.Your eyes
hold the radiance of the sun and your
heart overflows with love and compassion
for so many.
You're our angel and we're
blessed to have you here with us.
You're strength and perseverance to keep
pushing on is to be commended through the
trials you have faced and you have faced
each one with courage and determination.
As you go through your treatments I stand
beside you in prayer and yes and in tears
because you make me so very proud
These roses that are given to you each hold a special meaning
Representing, hope, faith, and abundance.
You as well as many others have shown us with
hope and faith anything can be overcome.Believing
it's HIS will for you to carry on in an abundance of love
Together we surround you in love, prayers,
and in tears as we cherish our one and only....
Gods Little Whispers...my Angel Mama....Mary Anne
There is one more special speaker
to whose goodness I'll attest
And when it comes to poetry
He's one of Starlites best
Without his special message
This poem is incomplete
So I'll let the pink man Bubby
Come to sweep you off your feet
Of course he's always different
never know what he will do
This time he's found angel
Created just for you
My dear Sweetpea,
You are not in this situation alone.Your Starlite friends are here and praying for you every step of the way
We are all caught up in the wind of our Lord,and He will carry us to our ultimate destination of heavens door.
You are an incredible, faith filled person and a joy to have as a friend.
Although the Pink Wars were waged in your honor,it was all filled with the fun,the mirth and the good will of all that participated.
Even though I am the Alpha male, and my pink poetry reflected as much, it was all meant to fill you with the fun, the happiness and prayers from all of our wonderful participants.
May God bless you in all ways for the rest of your days and know that we all love you.
Your most humble back booth fan.....hugsnprayers,
P.S. I would never eat frog legs....lol
Mary Anne it's now my turn
But there are no words to say
To let you know the way I feel
When I talk to you each day
So I could for just one night
Find the proper things to say
They would be the words of this video
Won't you listen while it plays
May the Good Lord
Bless and Keep you
Make you always live within
the warmth of heaven's smile
and may you always know
You will occupy a special
CORNER OF MY HEART
Long past eternity
Where the winds of heaven will sing
for us as we dance together for all time!
And now, one final word from your Morning Song....
MaryAnne, it has been a wild and wacky ride here, with our mutual sweet sister froggie.
We've loved the sound of your laughter, and we've shared in your tears. And through it all, dear one, we've held you so very closely, in our prayers. We luvs ya, hon. And now, I turn the microphone back to our wonderful hostess with the mostest, our beloved Jolly Noble Frog...
It's time to call it a goodnight
Morning Song, unplug the mike.
Our pink booth now fades your sight,
Will the last one out....
Please turn out the lights?
Thank you Bubby, for being such a good sport.
To emerge outside beneath
a streak of pale moonlight shining upon her
tying a huge ribbon of hope around this old Starlite Cafe.
