Having just gone through this with two members of our church and facing it with a family member now this was like seeing it all again in black and white.

This is just so beautiful. What a wonderful and precious Mum. All of this is written with such tenderness, particularly 3. I love your two phrases 'Time fills with grace' and 'time opens into eternity.' Wonderful writing. Many congratulations.

Oh, wow! This story is incredibly moving, and even more so to me because I went through something similar to this with my mother. I went home to care for her in her dying weeks from cancer, so I can really relate. I love how time transformed during each of the "ten tender weeks," and the ending, despite its sadness, was filled with hope. Beautiful piece and so deserving of its high honors this week! WAY TO WRITE!!

Congratulations on your well-deserved win. You have captured so many emotions in this story, while skilfully setting them free in our hearts and minds. It's brought back memories of my parents' deaths, and of many experiences of grief throughout my ministries. Great work.
