    Gail, this is simply wonderfully honest in the way you told the story. A fond memory amidst rough time, that is the best kind of fond memory. I still remember your boy when you talked about him and pray for him when he enters my thoughts. Luv, Andrea

    Such a moving story of love. The spiritual far outweighs the temporal. His love for you and his love for Christ are eternal. His current situation is temporal. And you have the love of God and your son in your heart which is eternal. And the sadness you feel now is only temporal. Thank you for sharing this lovely poem. God Bless.
