It was one of those magical times..you could never predict..never believe it would happen..but it does..
Bethy and me
We had spent the day together..
Remembering Our Diana
And putting our tributes up for the next day..
Unlike the British Press(who always say..50 people show up and around a hundred tributes..Where do they get their numbers?..)We knew Diana's people would come..
Thousands of them...
And we wanted to make sure our tributes were up for the next day..
Usually..the gates close at 8:00 p.m. at Kensington Palace..
They always have in years past..
Our Tributes and Candles..
For all our Diana friends
At Loving Lights..
But for some reason..this night..they stayed open..I can't describe the feeling..of walking down the main walkway in the dark..and seeing all our candles lit in front of Diana's home..
We sat there for hours till after midnight..till it was August 31st...
The day the world cried..
with Terry and Julie..Diana's faithful knights..Who each year sleep there and look after her tributes..We kept wondering..Where were the guards..Why didn't they tell us to go..or lock the gates..But were not going to complain..You see..
It was as if we were the only ones in the world that night..
Of all that loved her in the world...
Barbara and Me
We were there alone..
Under the starlight..
At her earthly home..Together..lighting our candles..In her memory..Listening to soft music playing in the night..
And remembering our Diana..
Julie Cain and I share a hug..
And a few tears..
As Candle In The Wind plays softly...
On Bethy's tape player..
My flowers and tribute
I pointed out to everyone..
The large single star hanging over Kensington Palace..And I said that the same star hangs over my house every night..
During the summer..
It is very large..and appears about the first part of July..And leaves the first part of November...I always think of it as Diana's star..and look for it each night before I go to bed..
But it is what I do every night..
And tonight is a night for sharing..
And we do alot of that..
Sharing feelings and thoughts..
Memories of our Princess Diana..
And it IS her star..(LOL..Angie..It is NOT a satellite!))

To Read about her star...
There was one light burning in the Palace that night..on an upper floor..We could almost believe she was there..And knew we were there for her..As we always have been..And always will be..
In the Wind..
But one thing is for certain..I will never forget that night..Diana's star shining..The candles..all lined up lighting the tributes there..The music playing softly..
