STAR LIGHT STAR BRIGHT

A few days ago I was at the Fed-X/Kinkos copying some of my genealogy pictures and documents for my book. I struck up a conversation with a gal who was copying a certificate in memory of her late parents. "What's this?" I asked...Now, many of you may already know about this site...but little 'ol me had never, I mean never heard of it....It is called STAR REGISTRY , which means this you can name a star after a loved one. Huh? Well, after talking with her and then checking out the site, it goes like this:
You actually get to name a star in one of the constellations for a loved one. They send you a certificate of the star registry with that person's name on it and a plot map of exactly which constellation it is in and where it is located. They have been in business for 30 years...where have I been!!?? I think this is so cool and will be naming a star in remembrance of my deceased parents for Valentine's Day. The light from this star will forever shine down on their loved ones for generations to come. To me it is a wonderful tribute to recognize their love for my family and to salute them for the person that I, my children and my grandchildren have become.

I think it's a beautiful idea. I keep thinking of how you'll just need to look for the second stars on the right and straight on till morning to see them.
