The Brightest Star

By June Hall

A star appeared not long ago

And began to shine its light

This one came so softly

But knew the time was right

To mark each place and make it special

With the warmth and glow it gave

Not leaving any empty spaces

Every moment meant to save

You felt that its appearance

Was branded in your soul

And consistent on every occasion

To make or exceed its goal

The star became the brightest

And took no claim to be

Just naturally doing its task on earth

So all the world could see

The darkness came so sudden

And caught us by surprise

The star we loved and saw each day

Was blocked from our eyes

The whole world was in shock

When the light went out that day

For that star was in its prime

Not ready to go this way

Today that star still shines

Brighter than it ever did here

In Heaven it has a special place

For we always feel it near

No other star will shine as bright

Or touch our lives as sweet

But we can certainly rest assured

That one day we will meet

Love to you always,

Aunt June

  1. I do hope if you have not read this book that you will consider doing so. It is truly touching and a contains true details of an incredible life, who innocently and willingly gave her life for others. This year of 2014 will mark the 8th anniversary of Nina’s death. In March of this year we are hoping for the trial,that will bring final closure. Purchasing this book will bring me closer for the Foundation to become a reality, as funds have been lacking to get this Foundation off the ground. Read and be blessed by this extraordinary life. Thank you ! Judy Ingram, Nina’s mother.

  2. In memory of Nina’s birthday which is Oct 1st, if you have not purchased this book, it will certainly inspire you, and give you more details about the kind of person she was. Thank you! Judy Ingram
