Best Payment for something I've written

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Back in June an old friend of mine was killed in a terrible motorcycle accident.

I hadn't seen him in over 20 years but he had helped me get out of a big mess and he was pretty special.

He is also the basis of the main character in my novel though the story is completely different.

The day he died I wrote a poem about him and put it on his memorial facebook page and today his sister wrote me(I don't know her) to say thank you.

His wife(who I've never met) had the poem read at the family service.

I am very moved by this. I'm glad it brought them a little measure of comfort.

Wow! That's wonderful that you were able to touch them in their sorrow. I'm sure that feel great. What a gift.
