    I’ve read this story several times online now – and bought the book too! Every time something strikes me afresh, something I didn’t see before or something previously edited out. I live the story with you and your family, and remember my own Mum’s journey through cancer. Great strides are being made in cancer treatment over the years, and I believe that one day this awful thing will be defeated. Too late for your Mom and mine, and so many others. But through their own experiences and the work of doctors and lab experts, it will be defeated – I really believe that. Your story helps so many other families to cope, to live through the worst of times and, sometimes, the amazing miracles that bring them extra time with their loved ones. Thank you for your story and for the dignity and courage shown by the characters within.

    Whew! At least now I know it’s not just me. Will we get TWO Stone Soups to make up tomorrow?

    I know you’ll say it’s not important – but I have bought the book now. And I will share the story with others. With your help, your Mom has left a wonderful legacy to the world. Thank you again.

    When this story first appeared at GoComics, I nearly didn’t read it, but I decided to give it a try. I could always remove it from my page when I got fed up with it. But somehow . . . I didn’t. The story was so simply told, so difficult and complicated but so clear and readable that I just kept on with it . . . and on, right to the end. It drew me in, as I know it has called so many other readers to its wisdom and honesty. Cancer has affected many, many lives over the years, but it is rarely told in such a frank and open way.

    There was a long gap . . . and then the story began again. This time, I believe, the story was told more fully, with more details along the way. The second reading was harder for me because my own mother had been hit by cancer in between, and it hit her hard. In short, we lost her, but she never lost her warmth or her smile.

    All I intended to say here was “Thank You” – thank you for writing this very painful story in such a beautiful and, yes, hopeful way. God Bless you and you family for sharing your story with others, and God Bless your Mom and my Mum too for their courage as they travelled that road to its peaceful end.

    Thank you, Brian Fies.

    Maybe they only have a little money to start with! Not everyone can afford central heating.
