Thank you for sharing your heartbreaking story, my deepest condolences for your unspeakable loss. So sorry.

Although your story broke my heart it offered a shining light through the darkness...your moment of awareness in your conversation with God is a witness and powerful statement of faith.

Blessings to you~
A very penetrating, full of emotion "life story". Good writing helped lead the emotion from the writer to the reader.
Trust demonstrated by action.

I forgot to share something with you. You can make a space between your paragraphs after you paste it in the FW page. See how it looks on preview first. I always have to add a space between my paragraphs too. Not sure why.

To make sure I don't submit it on accident before I'm finished playing with it, I don't put in my title or level, so for sure, I'm good. I learned that from experience.

Congratulations, Shirley, on winning 1st place in the Beginners category and moving up to the Intermediate category. This is quite an honor since there was so many entries this week.

Words cannot express my sorrow for your loss. My brother died in a car accident when he was 17. And though it happened about thirty years ago, I still experience moments of sadness.
Congratulations on ranking 1st in your level and 22 overall. The highest rankings can be found on the message boards.

Thank you for sharing your story. You have a powerful testimony that will give people hope. I'm sure you are already doing this. You did here.

I would not have guessed you were a beginner writer. This is beautifully written. I feel your heartache, your pain, and your trust in God.

I love your ending, " ... I chose not to live in those thoughts. I visit there sometimes, but I don't dwell there very long." That is total trust in God Almighty. So sorry for your loss. May God bless all you do for His glory..

You wrote-- "I still think about the what ifs sometimes, but I chose not to live in those thoughts. I visit there sometimes, but I dont dwell there very long."

That's a perfect encouragement for all of us.
