I love the description of sister Flannery's singing voice. :-)
This is a beautifully written piece with a lovely message.
I really enjoyed this! Well written.
What a wonderfully delightful tale! It really was the end to an experience I just had last evening at a community sing. I sang next to your Esther in the volunteer choir. Bless her heart!

Your first sentence really set the tone for a charming story.
I loved the part at the funeral. It reminded me of my great uncle's funeral where everyone shared stories about his pranks and laughed. Great job, but I did notice that you mentioned her name seven times in as many paragraphs-it was slightly distracting, but overall a very well written and enjoyable story!

I liked the part where she 'chose to walk on.' When I first started to read this a few days ago I thought,'Oh this must be Ben's - I'll come back to it!' And I'm so glad I did. Absolutely great! and I loved it!
What a great story! Well written!
Great job! This was funny, fun and packed a nice message about appearances sometimes being deceptive.
Great story! Your descriptions are unforgettable: "Her voice was a bit like a raging bull pawing a chalkboard with a rogue banshee riding side saddle". I think what I loved most was that Esther showed her love (to God and her husband) without caring what anyone else thought. Well done.
