|I have always found it very troubling whenever a state takes possession of someoneís property for back taxes. Thatís a whole different matter and one I have battled different states over. Anyways, JC, on the merits of the write, this is another shinning example of how easily one can be drawn towards your timeless creations. I wish you continued success, and look forward to drifting this way many more times in the future. Outstanding, well-written, heartfelt story/poem, Poet.|

|Oh Janet this is a precious write. I have had wonderful elderly friends like this. You have perfectly captured the bittersweetness of such a friendship. Congrats on your contest win, well deserved.|
|Reviewed by Kate Clifford
|You are a wise woman to enjoy the stories this elderly is sharing with you. Beautiful write!
The taking of the home got to me. I am furious with both of our governments lack of resepct for our elderly and lack of acknowledgement of all of what they have given us through out their lives, just to take it away from them when they are too old to fight for it. Burns me up!

|Reviewed by Lisa Hilbers
|Janet, I felt the tears welling, as I read this. For to me there is nothing as beautiful as the stories one can tell of a love gone first.
I adore talking to the aged, for they are not only wise but they've seen so much, and they are willing to share it when they find somebody that will listen.
I just loved this. Thanks Janet. Lisa
