“The stars looked alive that night at Marabou, like they were only 50 feet above us, as if you could touch them. We started seeing shooting stars, one right after the other. My 15-year-old daughter grabbed my hand and said, ‘Dad, I love you.’ I felt as if I gave her the gift of the stars that night. It’s a moment that will be ours forever.”

-Mark Hall, recalling a cherished night under the Marabou Sky
