This is one of my favorite old hymns, too. What a beautiful picture of celebration memorial service.

After such a hectic day...the ending was such a delight; even though it was a funeral. The song was perfect for the ending of a life, of a busy day. The words "I'll Fly Away" bring such peace and serenity. Very nicely done.
You painted their your MC's sadness and frustration well. It's ironic that it took a funeral to cheer her up.

A sad, yet semi-inspirational story. Good job!
Interesting how our focus can change in an instant once we learn of something that out weighs our current circumstances. I can see why you chose the title and the song. Allison Krause does such a wonderful job with it as did you with your story.
I love the message in this story. You did a wonderful job!

LOVE IT! "Fly-Away," always makes me think of my mom, it was one of her favorite hymns.

Such a well-written piece, Angela. Congrats on being chosen for the Member showcase this week.
So much of the time I feel like Marie did in the beginning of your story. Thanks for the smiles and the tears.
Oh Angela this is just lovely~ What an encouraging break from the usual heaviness of our losses. Did my spirit good this morning.
