Who joined the Shooting Stars

October 3rd, 2003

Tico as a handsome youngster.


There are those who come into our lives bright and brilliant

To dominate our skies with their blinding light.

They burn into our hearts and memories

Images and emotions etched in spirit-fire,

Leaving scars that shine in the depths of our souls.

And then they move on -- far too soon.

These are the Shooting Stars.


Tico, relaxing in his own special way
