Wonderful story - my wife will like this one. Loved the sad/happy ending.
I really like the way that Martha stepped into eternity. Lovely.

Use "She and John" rather than "Her and John" or "John and her."

Nice, atmospheric piece. I felt like I knew these two faithful people.
This was a nice piece. I too liked the way you ended it. :)
Like squeaky chalk on a blackboard makes you cringe; the "John and her" scraped against my nerves in the very first of the story. Then there was nothing about Spring...just cold,bleak winter. But you pulled it off, rallied the troops, made it into something very beautiful! The ending was like soothing ointment to my earlier jagged nerves. Thank you for sharing...and just a little editing will do it! Loved it!
Heartwarming story - gave me a warm fuzzy. I like the ending. Very nice.
A very sweet story!! Thanks for sharing!
