Enjoyed the upbeat of a sad situation.

Evocative and jolting prose. Poetic, spare, deeply moving.

I kept the tears from flowing until the last line. Beautiful, sad, and touching.

What a pleasure to find someone with the skill to tell a tragic story without sentimentality, yet keep the narrative brimming with sentiment.

Thank you Jeanne. Thank god your heart is big enough for both Crystal and Sandy and, it is clear, big enough for all of us.

Jeanie, Thanks for giving us a glimpse of your past. My favorite sentence is "The rush of enclosed air exhaled the draft of long-ago dreams." Beautiful writing and beautiful story.
