This one made me cry — hit very close to home. Beautifully done.
Very emotional. Its like I can't get passed the story to tell you how well you did. That's my compliment. God bless.
Very emotional. Wonderful closing. It tugged at my heartstrings.
A beautiful and loving tribute. Wonderfully done.
The description in this piece is excellent, adding to the authentic emotion which places the reader right beside the one who grieves.
What a sad and beautiful tribute. There were quite a few grammatical errors in this peice, and I think the flashbacks my have been more clear if they were in italics, but the word and emotional pictures you created were touching.
Great images, emotion, story-telling. Well-framed in a frozen few moments of time when the water becomes almost a living reality to receive, bury, carry, and return dust to dust - powerful stuff.

Great story, you brought back memories for me through your own. Well done.
What a beautiful tribute. Loved the imagery, the voice, and the content. I am still in awe of the love that came through this one. So much of the human condition is found in grief. Thanks for this piece.
