This a touching story. And I loved the southern drawl of the 8 yr. old boy, You could almost hear it. I was sad for the family when the father died but glad to see they made it through to learn just how precious life is.
This is a good story, well written, though I have reservations about burdening a ten year old with a Father's role- like "you're the man of the house now" following a bereavement.

Very well told story. Sounds like an Applachian accent. Sad, but glad the family came through. Nicely done.
