As the mother of a grown son whom I dearly love, you've left me with a tear after reading this heart rending story. So effectively written!
Having two sons who were raised with Christian principles who later decided they no longer believed, this story reminded me of the sadness in my heart everyday as I continue to pray for their change of heart. The thought of them NOT going to share heaven with me is almost beyond bearing. A very touching and real story that will undoubtedly touch many lives.

What a powerful story. I think letting more description stand out would only move it more to unrecognisable proportions. I think all of us have lost someone who is an unbeliever, but for it to be a son... wow.
Wow, a very powerful entry. Beautiful, sad and touching. Thank you for sharing.
All the mothers who read this will understand.....
Powerful and emotive, tenderly written. God bless.
