Wonderful, beautiful. Held my attention, had to continue to the end, to find out what the flowers were for. Wondering though, this should be up a few notches. Dandelions are one of my favorites too. Wonderful from beginning to end. God bless ya, littlelight
Marvelous story! Tear-jerking as well!
Made me cry! What a poignant reminder of how the choices we make affect the lives of so many!

Great storey and with a twist too!
Wow, intrigued by a man collecting dandelions I had to keep reading...what an ending.
Beautiful and poignant.
I really enojyed your story. I got the feeling that the man was still bitter. I'm sure there is always a temptation to decide not to forgive someone even after you have decided to. The decision to forgive must be made everyday. Good job.
WOW! excellent story!

Your story caused emotions to leap inside of me.
Funny, I started reading with the thought that Travis was collecting dandelion greens to eat, since that was a memory from my own experence. WHAT A TWIST, to be led to the scene by the crosses where the grieving duo sprinkled those blossoms!!! Very nicely done. Keep up the good work. :-)
Well written story and lovely angle on the challenge topic. Kept me intrigued to the end. Only comment is that I too thought the man held bitterness - but three crosses makes that understandable. Thank you!
Wow! Your work is truly a blessing. You inspire your readers (especially this one)to seek the same compassion evident in man who lost his family; the compassion of Christ.
