Not surprised at all that this took first place, Jan! Powerful words, emotive and deep, great use of nature to reinforce the cold, hard feelings after one dies. Congratulations for your trophy win ~ John

I know this is fiction and I am so glad it is. I lost my first born at 5 days old - it was heartbreaking. Sad but beautifully told. - Good Luck Jan. Hugs and blessings my friend. Jennifer.
