I am by no means a famous author or literary expert, nor do I plan on becoming either. One does not have to spend years in a library or university studying poetry or ancient texts in order to tell a story. A story is a painting; told through song, word of mouth, pictures or with a pen and ink. As we see fit, these images get painted by our mind's eye. My name is David Cox; the son of the author. This particular story is one I think we all can relate to. Death is often a difficult topic of discussion, surprisingly so is friendship. In memoriam we often see their similarities and the relationship in which they coexist. In ‘Ring of Remembrance’ the thoughtfulness of one friend is shown to carry on, even after her passing. This is a heartwarming tale of life after death and the remarkable ability for friendship to carry on. I hope this story paints a picture; a hopeful and bright image in your imagination. Even when sadness envelopes us, look more closely for the glimmer of hope, the twinkle of creativity, the thoughtfulness of longevity and the mystery of emotion. The story of my beloved Auntie may even bring a sparkle to your eye in the form of a tear. She was one of my favorite people in the world, and I know that she watches over me. I will never forget such a kind and fun loving person. So in closing, I hope that all may relate to this story of endurance and love. I saw this story played out in real life. I hope you find that the author captures the essence of the emotions. Enjoy!
