Very well done Sue. I enjoyed that :) I thought that your voice was clear and your pronunciation excellent, also the style and and pace of your reading, I thought, was perfect for the mood and the subject.
I assumed it was ( imaginative bits aside ) from your own experience of loss, and you have expressed in your writing what's true to your feelings. That's what I thought. :)

Thanks Bill and Neville. I wrote this poem after my six year old grandson asked me recently, ''If you could go to heaven, just for a little visit, who would you talk to? Left me thinking, as grandkids often do, and as he had just lost his dog and was told ''Honey is in heaven'', I guess he was looking for some way he might be able to go there and see her, maybe he thought being Nan, [and we all know, Nans can fix anything :) ] I would be able to come up with a way to put things right. He left me speechless. :( But your right Nev, personal experience is very much behind this one.
Bill has just put audio to this recording [Thanks for that Bill, you are a champ] and I think it makes the world of difference.

Cheers
Sue
