WOW.. heartbreaking! Not sure how I would handle having to go through something like this.
I had to go find a box of kleenex for this one. What a beautiful and heartfelt piece. Thank you for blessing us with it.
Beautifully written piece.
I also have lost a son. It was to cancer and he was only 33. It is heartbreaking and it still is, but God is still great and their is much wonderful witnessing in being present when a Christian life is now ending in heaven! God's grace to you, too.
Brought tears to my eyes with this piece. It's beautiful and so sad at the same time. I loved how you used the song with the story. That made it even more real. Great writing. ^_^
No words, just thans for a great entry.
Wow! This was a tear jerker. My son lost a friend, just a year out of high school. This scene sounds like what happened in Jimmy's room. God bless you for this reminder of Love, LIfe, and the Afterlife.
A transition such as this isn't easy to do, very brave! Seemed to come to an abrupt ending. Maybe it was the transition back. Either way, I liked this so much.
Precious and peaceful...I almost felt as if I were reading it in a whisper.
Very engaging and compelling. Your descriptions are just lovely.
I could hear the humming and then the singing, along with the tears (mine included). Very powerful.
Very tender and lovely. It makes the final good-bye easier when we know our loved ones will be in Heaven. This reminded me of my young husband's home-going 12 years ago.
