|Reviewed by Gwendolyn Thomas Gath
Utterly heart touching.
Pristine descriptions and completely in your face write.
One would never know exactly how this feels unless experienced, however through this write of "Seven Pounds-by Linda Law" it totally explains it all not to me ntion gives you the inner feelings experienced.
Linda, you have really poured so much into this write.
Wishing you peace and lots of love,

|ah, Linda! I'm so sorry for your loss and the grieving you must go through. So much is incomprhensible to us...you'll know when the time is right to let go..meanwhile, your poetry touches many ...you chip away with your writing at the aloneness someone who accutely feels personal loss
|Reviewed by Jerry Engler
|The analogy to seven pounds is a wonderful piece of writing, but so close to the heart it endears beyond that. Peace, love and faith to you, Linda....Jerry|

|OMG Linda this is so heartwrenchingly beautiful. You love will never die for it was made in Heaven and that's where it will continue. Think of all the wonderful stories you can tell him and all the wonderful poems you wrote can be said to him. He is one lucky man...for he had you, a love that can not be measured by a scale. Love and hugs, Bonnie|

|Dear Linda, How nice reading your poem. Life is immeasurable, no one can determine its beauty and the extent of our association with life.
Everyone has to choose according to his or her God given talent what they like and please. I feel profoundly melted in the sweetness of life when I read or when I hear music. I will never be able to express this mervellous feeling the way you did. Love Emile.

|Thank you all for your kind words... Gib did get a 21 gun salute, and had a nice military memorial, but I kept his Urn... I've tried to stay strong and hold the tears, but it's just like so fresh, no matter what I do... just wish it would go away somehow....but yet, I would lose him forever if I do... so... I hang on... and live in another world too... We always seem to walk our lives wearing different masks... hugs to each of you... LIndalaw|

|I can do relate. My father-in-law, a World War II veteran, passed away on December 7th - quite appropriate - 5 years ago. We was reduced to ashes, yet buried with full military honors and a 21 gun salute.|

|Each moment is precious as the grim reaper makes his calls when we least expect it. So sorry for your loss.|

|I had to laugh when I received a notice from Author's Den in my email account that "Linda Law added Seven Pounds"... hee, hee...
But...when I opened the link I was met with a somber poem about life...letting go...and holding on to those who mean the most to us. A poem that hit to the very core of my fears...that someday I might have to walk alone in this life.
A beautiful, well-composed poem... Thank you for sharing and helping us to see inside your own compassionate heart.

|This brought tears to my eyes Linda. My own husband's seven pounds now lay in the Veterans Cemetery in Hawaii where we lived at the time of his passing. I also selected a brass container for his remains and was given the honor of placing it in his plot during the 21-gun salute. On that last morning we had coffee together, he went on some errands, and before noon he was gone. Just pulled the car off the road and left this world. We never get over the loss, we just learn to get through it.|
