This was such a sweet story--it put a lump in my throat. The emotion shown was palpable.

So poignant, so touching...so beautiful. I loved this story. It reminded me when my mom and dad sold our childhood home. They were in it for 45 years. A lot of memories. Thanks for this memorable entry.

God bless~

Awww. I was soaking up every word, and then the babies and the son left me hoping that this is fiction. Lovely, engaging style. Well done.
This is beautiful. How wonderful that God knew many of us needed a special person to help us through the sad times with the strength that Jesus gives everyone if they only ask. At first, I thought it was going to end with the revelation that one suffered from Alzheimer's. As the baby boomers retire there are more and more stories like that. I'm delighted you didn't go in that direction. Though they both would stand by the other I'm sure. Losing a child does one of two things pulls a couple closer than they could imagine or breaks them apart. I could feel the strength of the cord that binds your two delightful characters together.
Congratulations on ranking 20th overall!
