Heartbreaking and authentic. I still remember and cherish my dad's lucid moments during his last year. The brother may never get another chance to make that choice again.

An achingly beautiful piece. It came through as so real, and how better to illustrate the proverb? Wow.

You captured the topic in a very touching story. Lovely.
Ouch! You clearly illustrate both sides of the topic.
What a wonderful take on the topic! Katrina certainly made the most of the sunshine. Pity her brother didn't have her smarts. What a wonderful husband James is to be so understanding. I loved the teasing between father and daughter. Well done, well done!
A bittersweet, totally authentic take on the subject. Well done.
You showed the truth of this topic in a tender, beautiful way.

Oh my. I needed a tissue for this one. What an exceptional example of the topic--of making hay and not making hay. Wonderful story of such a special gift.
