Wow. This is really good. You told it well. The end brought quick tears to my eyes.

I think bath should be bathe and you left a period out here: Sadie’s oldest daughter found her mother’s body that evening Later

Overall, I really liked this piece. Made me think of my husband and me.
Wow... this is really good. You touched on so many of the senses - sight, sound, smell... drawing the reader into her experience. Left me with a feeling of sadness, but that's what good writing is all about - affecting the reader in some way.
Well done.

A seamless transition to the flashback, and wonderful words and phrases make this a top-notch piece of writing! Love the title and the last sentence, too.

Okay. You made me cry. Not fair. lol. This is so beautiful! I love the flashback, the dialouge between the husband-wife and especially the 'vines'. You did a wonderful job with this! Good luck with the judging! ^_^

Nathan, this was a BEAUTIFUL story. It happens that I just put my mother-in-law in assisted living today...and she's cried all day to go back to her home. This was just so touching. Wow! I cried for Sadie and I cried for my mother-in-law. I also saved a few tears for myself! Fantastic job. A well deserved win!
