    Well, this is a well written piece of short prose which has a
    rather nice flow of word sounds to enhance the message.
    This would make a rather nice segment of a loving short
    story which could be expanded by creative minds into
    a nice Hallmark Hall OF Fame production for television.
    That's not going to happen, so this medium will have
    to do. Fortunately, the writer is up to the task.
