Very powerful and poignant story of life, death, and acceptance of life long friendships.

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.

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.

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.
