I loved this story! Beaufiful, vivid character description from start to finish. I could see the elderly pastor up in his tree and feel both his compassion and his pain. Wonderful imagery. My favorite line: "The rising sun colored his thinning, white hair like silver tinsel."

This one deserves to place. Great job!

This was wonderful! Very descriptive and emotional and vivid! I could see him at his tree and feel his heartache. You are very good with words - not too overdone but good verbs and just enough adjectives. Again - you told a very nice story from beginning to end:)
No wonder this was a winner. It's heartwarming and loving.
