What a heart-breaking story! The support of the church at the end is touching. You definitely evoked emotion with this one.

So sad...I felt their changing emotions...first their pain, then joy, then pain again. But I loved the glimmer of hope at the end. Nicely done.

Very real emotions here - this touched me in so many ways. Masterfully written.

This kind of loss happened to my pastor and his wife. When my late husband was diagnosed with cancer, this same pastor came and sat across from my husband, reached out his hands to him, and they cried together. The hurts of life know no boundaries, but God can use these hurts to bridge gaps and join hearts.

Congratulations on your EC. You did a good job of expressing the pastor's heartache -- for himself, his lost child, his wife. And I loved the way the deacon stepped in. Nice job with the topic.
