This flowed well... I like how the dialogue between the two carried the story to a hope filled ending. Good job.

Excellent job on the interaction between the two men. You did a wonderful job of showing the emotion they were experiencing, and the truth they came to know through that wonderful song.
This is a masterfully written story. I couldn't wait to read each new line and was rewarded with a wonderful conclusion.
For me, this was not too depressing at all. I truly developed empathy for your characters and appreciated the story from beginning to end.
As someone who recently lost their mother, this comes at a very special time. This piece is beautifully and respectfully written and it brings up not just one perfect gift of the season, but two. One being perfect peace, the other hope and the gratitude to those who share its promise.

A well-told story. The emotions are genuine - you choked me up, especially toward the end when Tony reveals his feelings of hope to his dad. No, not too depressing at all. One of my faves this week.
