One year ago, February First, the Columbia Space Shuttle disintegrated on re-entry over clear blue Texas skies.

In Memory of the Columbia Seven--

Rick Husband
Laurel Clark
William McCool
Kalpana Chawla

Michael Anderson
Ilan Ramon

My prayers and thoughts are with your families and loved ones.

Let us always remember and never forget. :(

They all dreamed of this moment
living out their hopes
their fantasies
working hard for this one moment
reaching ever higher
ignoring limits
defying gravity that bound them to the earth
they wanted one moment
just one bright shining moment
in time and space
they now dwell among the stars

When we turn our gaze skyward
toward the heavens
searching the stars
for answers about that moment
we may not have answers
but do not be sad
they're free to dance on the aurora borealis
they have endless moments
to soar through the universe
to touch God's face
please tell Him 'Hello' from us

Oops, I Lost my Sense of Humor by Lois Santalo

Death came for me in 2001 in the form of pancreatic cancer. Doctors advised against surgery due to my age--but I felt that even an extra year or two is worth fighting and suffering..
