Brought a tear to my eye here. I could feel the emotions and I was glad that in their 'weakness' they found strength to pull through the grief. This was lovely to see how the MIL simply accepted her new DIL, beginning their relationship with a hug. Great job. ^_^
This is so tender and touching. It's nice when mothers-in-law are so accepting right away. The ending was a perfect fit. Nicely done.

This was tender and beautiful. It reminds me of, "Your people will be my people..."
Well done.

Your one word title results in a one word comment: TISSUE!

SEriously, though, this really pulled at my heart strings.

Very well done! It brought a tear to my eyes, as the story was very "close to home" for me. My husband and I recently buried my dad and his mom in the space of five months, and we each tried to be strong for the other, too, at such a wrenching time. Your story acurately portrayed the emotions we go through during loss!
Thank you for sharing this!

Wonderful family ties. You wrote the emotion and the perfect tender memories to let us know the mother who will greatly missed. Thank you for telling this tender story.
Beautifully and tenderly done. The characters are presented realistically. The emotions are truly felt. Really nice job. :)
Extremely well-written and contains so many elements of really good writing.

Lovely story and characterization. Very tender.
This was so beautiful and had me reaching for the Kleenex. You have done a wonderful job of showing rather than telling all the emotions bound up in meeting, loving and losing someone dear. Well done.
