Very nicely done. For a tragic incident you make it oh, so much better than it could have been.....

That was a powerful story in only 9 pages! I especially liked when referred to his deceased mother's body as a "vessel" for her spirit.

I know, deep and dreary, but I appreciate the positive feedback!
