This song was written by Shay Healy who is And was a very Popular Irish Musician,

He has Motor Neurone Disease and it's sad because he still keeps going just like Vasht did. I have copied the words here as they are beautiful And so suitable for Vashti.

Just click on this link and it will take you to You Tube, enjoy.

utu.be/rJSGIzQuIvgWhen You Become Stardust Too

When my life is over I’ll become a bit of stardust 
Out there in the heavens out beyond the blue 
And if you want to see me just look into the night sky 
You will see me shinning winking down at you 
Stars were made for wishing so make your wish upon me 
And I’ll do what I can to make your dreams come true
Dry away you tears now our souls go on forever 
And maybe we will meet again when you become stardust too

Every life’s a story and mine was no exception 
Full of great adventure and lots of ups and downs 
When destiny came calling she knew just where to find me 
I was always in the back room laughing with the clowns 
And in my role as jester I hope that I amused you 
As along the way we shared a smile or two 
So dry away your tears now our souls go on forever 
And maybe we will meet again when you become stardust too

Memories are special I hope that you’ll remember 
The happy times together with family around 
I found my special glory in writing songs and stories 
Trying to match the right words with the perfect sound 
If there’s a choir of angels I hope they’ll let me join them 
And I’ll sing out my harmony the way I do 
Dry away your tears now our souls go on forever 
And maybe we will meet again when you become stardust too 
Dry away your tears now our souls go on forever 
And maybe we will meet again when you become stardust too

Weathervane, I listen to this and I cry and think about my Partner Jim who died 7 yrs ago, I'm glad you liked it, as people can have different tastes. It always brings tears to my eyes, which is healthy given the circumstances.

Thank you photo geek.

I found this Irish saying .

May your Home always be too small to hold all your Friends.'

Vashti invited all into her colourful, cosy home through her stories.
