After two boxes of tissues, one bar of chocolate and one cry fest, words fail me. I cannot tell you how cathartic and emotional was for me to read this story. After battling cancer twice, then first time when I was barely sixteen, I started reading this story with the understanding that it would be quite hard, I can't even imagine how it must have been to write, so for that, the only thing I could think of saying is a very heartfelt Thank You. Thank you for being strong enough to write this story and thank you for being brave enough to post it online. Your words have mark me, and I will never forget them. God bless you. Sincerely, Mina.
Ps. I hope heaven smells like my mom too.

A truly beautiful story. I cried my heart out the whole way through but it was completely worth it.

Pew it was a very difficult story to read - I can only imagine how hard it must have been to write. I loved it all - even though you made me sob so hard I had to put away ny reader for a while. I haven't lost a child to cancer, but throughout all my teenage years we lived with it as an unwelcome guest in our home and shirtly after my birthday it finally took away my beloved mother. I especially loved the part where we followed Rileys POW - thank you

I'm having trouble typing because the tears keep falling but I had to leave a review - this is an amazing story and you are an amazing writer, I feel the pain - the hurt - the hopelessness as was it happening to me ...

I know its a while since this story ended but i managed to read it only a few days , i wanted to ask you to brief me in on Alice and Jaspers part. I didnt quite get it . It was too good.. I probably used a dozen of tissue boxes. I loved it.
Write back ?/ PM me ?

I am normally a reader that loves lemons but a friend convince me to read this. Being a cancer survivor myself, this is very touching, really great fic. I'm really glad I decided to read it and thank you for writing

Wow. For some reason i held out reading this story for ages. So glad i finally did read it. Such a heavy and tragic story but still leaves you hopeful at the end. Really well written, well done to you.

I finished you story earlier today and I have to say, it broke my heart. This had to be difficult to write, I'm sure, especially as a mother. I'll be honest, ever since I saw this story on your profile, I've been avoiding it. I knew I couldn't read a story about a child dying, but I finally decided to give it a try, because I love your writing. Maybe I'm naïve, but I was really hoping for a happy ending. I really thought there'd be some miracle to save Riley's life. I get that not everything can be sunshine and rainbows but I was really hoping this one would be. Can you blame a girl? :-)
I thought it was wonderfully written. I adored the alternate POV's, especially Riley's. He was wise beyond his years but still so much a child that it was sad how perceptive he was. And I truly enjoyed the fact that it focused mainly on the relationship between the three of them. Though I would have loved to have found out what happened with Heidi, I appreciate that you didn't dwell on the drama of his career (and past) and just stayed the course where they were concerned. It was refreshing not to have to worry about any real outside interference.
When Riley sang to Brittney, I lost it. One of the saddest things I've read in a long time. Completely heartbreaking when he died, but it's nice to know he'll have family and friends waiting for him.
I notice that a lot of your stories have a bit of the supernatural in regards to the afterlife in them and I just want to say, I love that about you. Your take on everything is amazing and the fact that Jasper was Mike's brother and Alice Edward's cousin was just perfect. Another thing that I adore about your stories is that you don't pigeon hold a character to what they were in the originally series. With you, James can either be the bad guy or a beloved family member, Tanya the flirtatious co-worker or loving Aunt.
So, in other words, your stories are amazing. Keep up the great work. Though, I don't know if I can handle another story where a child dies. If another comes about, I may have to pass.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful writing. I look forward to whatever comes next. :-)

I don't know if I can type out a coherent review since I'm still crying, but this was a wonderful heartwarming, gut wrenching at times and amazingly written. I don't know if you wrote from experience or not, but losing a child or anyone to cancer is hard, but this story shows you that life goes on and we move on but never forget. The way you included Alice and Jasper was brilliant! I gotta go and read something funny now cause I won't be able to sleep! Beautiful story well worth the lump in my throat and tear tracks on my face.
