I have written this story to try to comfort myself about why you were taken from us so early. I have made up creatures in a spirit world, all pure fantasy, though one was inspired by the Irish crow Fernando. In writing about friends, family, and events, I have tried to preserve their true essence. Most of all, I hope I have been true to you and your beautiful spirit that I feel with me every day.
I hope that God does not mind my trying to understand His reasons, or the workings of the spirit world. I'm fully aware that everything I've written about that world comes only from my imagination and make no claim to know what happens when we leave this life.
In this story you are Lightsong. Hope you like the name.
