Heartbreakingly honest, and beautifully written. Some things will never make sense here...and that is why I'm glad we have a home with the King. Your last line reflects love and faith--the Haleys of this world are blessed to learn of Him through people like Uncle Dan and his wife. Thank you for sharing.

Wow! What a hook! This memoir kept me engaged all the way through. The ending, though heartbreaking, reveals the narrator's humility and acceptance. Excellent writing.

This is packed with emotion and so heartbreaking. Your writing is very good. You kept me comletely engaged to the end. I wish you could have written a different ending for this story, though.
