Beautifully written, evocative story. Lifelong friendship is another kind of love and parting can be equally as painful.

The story made me cry, then the song did a second time.

Response from the author:

I'm so glad you listened to the song too.  The singer wrote it as a tribute to his mother after she passed away.  I think it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

A sad but wonderfully beautiful and emotional story to remind us that our loved ones live on in our heart. An emotional and worthwhile read.

A thoughtful short story of love and loss, how those we have loved and lost are never truly gone.

A short story that is beautifully written.

It's a wonderful story of lifelong friendship and the pain that occurs when we lose someone close to us.
