Well-told story with a touching ending.
Congratulations on your win, Virginia! This was such a precious story. I love it that the boy was named Jack - by his choice. Very nice story. Good work.
Congratulations Virginia! Well done.
Hallmark Hall of fame story here. Obviously constrained by word count you may have had to slim down on a storyline you would have loved to expand on.

I could see more development with the building bitterness of the main character and finding a way to infuse Jack into the story, but the overall tone of the story and the elements involved allowed the story to be something that all the best stories do - leave you satisfied, but wanting a little more.

Very well done.
