A story is nicely done when it can bring a tear to my eye. That wasn’t the ending I expected. I hope this is fiction.
I agree with Stephen! I did pick up that things would take a sad turn wit your foreshadowing. "We were usually gone long before the engine roared by."
Just wow! I hope this places high.

Nicely done. I hope this is fiction. But because of your excellent writing, it's hard to tell.

This story absolutely deserves its place of honor in the ECs! I felt as I read your story a bit like I felt watching Fried Green Tomatoes, when the boy (Buddy, I think), got his foot caught in the rails of the track.
I so hoped it wouldn't turn out that way in your story, and I teared up at the wonderfully spiritual, and well written. A huge CONGRATULATIONS on second place!

What a wonderful read, heart-warming but O so sad at the end. Beautifully written.
