Some stars burn so brightly, they burst before they see the cosmos unfold. You shared the warmth of your glow with as many as you could before you rose too high for the sky to handle and scattered sacred stardust across it. Your legacy is seen in constellations.

A few days later

Mom called me to the window today to show me a lone star in a cloudless sky. She said she thought of you.

Mother's Day, 2014

Nana told me at lunch today that she heard footsteps in the room where she keeps your urn. She went upstairs to greet Papa several times, thinking the footsteps were his, but found him sleeping. Our waitress gave each woman at our booth a carnation. Outside, sunlight adorned our skin and held us.

I could have sworn I felt you holding us, too.

I took a plane out of Chicago to get back home. The sun set mid-flight, tie-dying the sky in orange and red. As we rose over the clouds, my jetlagged eyes rested upon a lone star pinned against a patch of periwinkle.  

I thought of you, and in my mind, I said hello.

Oh my goodness, I love this! I've used this similar style a few times, and it's so great for getting multiple memories across. Congrats on the DD--this is very well-written and touching.
