Simple but touching.
It caught you in from the beginning to end.
Very well written, and powerful. We all need to be more like Jim and make ourselves vulnerable by sharing our griefs, as well as our joys.
A great story. After experiencing a similar experience(though I didn't have to write about it)it really tore at my heart, and have a great appreciation for one who could actually share at the time of his grief. Very well done!
The power of the pen is shown in this story. The town was able to rally and support this writer's journey. I felt this way about a columnist in my own hometown paper when he shared the loss of his beloved wife to cancer. Good story.
The emotion in this story really touched me. Great job on this heartwrenching piece.
A tough story indeed. Very touching and heart felt. Beautifully told.
Such vivid emotion - and certainly a terrible story to have to write. You did a very good job with this.
Congratulations on placing in the top 8 of your level.
