This is such a lovely idea!! I'm a big fan of quotes, so various quotes make me happy. One of my all-time faves is:

"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

My dear Petty, even though I haven't heard of this song or watched this video previously, and even though I don't know what happened with Julie, there is something deeply, deeply moving here. Your tribute of Brightness to Julie is beautiful. I believe she'd feel this, too. Thank you so much for sharing this.
