We feel like we’ve lost you too soon,
but just when we’re needing a boon,
we’ll look up and smile:
in true Powers style
you’ve platinum-plated the moon.
Inspired by my cousin, Carrie Powers-Miller. Thanks for the idea of Uncle Jim and Punk platinum-plating the heavens!
Also inspired by my son, Brandon, who was inspired by his Aunt Peggy (my seeester), who was inspired by Truvy, who reminded us that “It’s all right. Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.” Truvy (Dolly Parton); Steel Magnolias.
The edit of this credit was inspired by Peg, who read it, then reminded me that it was *she who told my son to get it.
