they do, but remember edgar, they are also 'part' of him, genetically they are part of him, and he is part of them, and you; beyond memory, he is within you, and lives on as you do in your children.

don't "ball up" Edgar.

damn, edgar, that was a great story. Thanks for posting it. I'll try to come uo with a contribution.

BTW, a suggestion to everyone: a story like that, to be fully appreciated, needs to be read aloud. We lose a lot by just scanning the words in a book or on a computer screen. We lose the rhythm, the cadence.
Plus it is great fun to lie on the couch and be read to. -rjb-

Edgar, I've read every piece on this thread (that's a lot of reading for me). I didn't realize you were such a fantastic writer. What books have you published?

Edgar, my "good" was sort of dry. I didn't mean it as equivocal, but that I was pulled in, nothing jarred, yet the writing was rich.

No prob, ossobuco. I often give the same response when I really want it to mean a bit more.

Stuh
I am an amateur. I belong to a writer's site which does its own publishing (titles will soon be available on Amazon, I believe) and a few of my works will be in them.

I am at work on a novel and collecting short stories for a book. I may never be well known, but I have fun anyway.

There are many great writers that never become well known.
Edgar, let us know when your works will be available at Amazon Smile

I just finished reading "Long Shadows"<smile>
A heartfelt description of family and memoriesÂ…in a way, it reminded me of my own. Beautiful story!
