'Remember that the happiest people are not,
those getting more, but those giving more.'
Distant friends, often on your mind,
Those who let you know you're on theirs,
Always offering words so kind,
Words that let you know they care.
I never thought that I would see,
I never thought how it would be,
That a friend, near or far, clearly,
Showed she was there for all, for me.
I knew from day one, from the start.
A friend like this I've found right here,
She gives so much straight from her heart,
So it is, I say.....thank you Brandy dear.
As Starlite shines on, like a lingering dream,
Occurring in the many colors,
Of unselfish devotion....of friendship,
My thoughts remain strong and clear today,
Through whispered words on screen,
I send thanks to my dear friend Brandy,
And to Steve for all they give, for all they do.
