Your lovely story is full of beauty, passion, loneliness, respect, lust, caring, nostalgia. It is one of the best I've read on this site. Thank you so much. Hoping to read more from you.
This has to be the most touching story I've ever read. The wonderful characters Ronde has created, the atmosphere around them, everything blends together to create a literary masterpiece. True this story touched me ever so deeply. I don't cry easily, but this story moved me to tears.
I hope that someday Ronde decides to expand thiss story into a full novel. I think it has the potential to be a best seller.
I have to agree to Anonymous in Kentucky on this one though I have a tendency to cry easily, but i must admit that that this was the most touching story i ever read. Also I belive that I will remember story for a long time, since storys that tend to move me deeply like this stays with me for a long time..
Even if the story is fiction from an active imagination, it is a wonderful tribute to the memory of "Laura and Charlie."
Laura's dedication to the work in spite of great sacrifice and hardship is very touching.
Thanks for your diligence in writing this story for all of us to share.
Just great. It is more than just a story. You lived it.
Ronde, I missed this one before and I found it to be one of the most touching stories I've read here. Some one said before that you should complile your stories in a book. Please consider it, I'd buy a copy. And, please, continue to write. And, for some reason, I really want a glass of Michigan made wine right now.
A story, well done and beutifly told.
I love to read erotic literature, but your story touched me in a different way.
You should write a book.....no, really you should!
I totally agree with the man (woman?) suggesting you to write a book. Well go ahead. I will be the one who will buy it first....
You have a great gift of telling a story that not many people in this whole world has. I would say that you're equal to the authors that write best selling romance novels. This is a wonderful short story, and would make a good submission to a publisher to showcase your talent. I agree with the others that you should write a book.
Nice job Ronde. Very touching. An erotic story that actually makes me think about life.
hard absolute realty, touched with tenderness, lilt with the flavour of humane emotion, the turbulance of passion,
the sacrifice of conformity
truly the traits and pleasure of a fine mature wine
This is one of those stories that affect you so much that you have to read it more than once.An extremely moving story from a master storyteller.
A truley great story wrote with feeling & sincerity to the story line.A really good read & may it add power to your elbow.
Thanks & Carry on Your good work
Had me in tears at the end, it was so beautifully written, and such a satisfying story. The erotic element was well done, but only part of a much greater whole.
You have a great talent for expressing the bittersweet state of being an ageing woman.
I'm new to Literotica and not generally prone to leaving coments. I've written a story (Pillow Talk (Loving Wives)) that I thought was good until now. This is what great erotica is about!
Thank you so much for this wonderful story. Brought tears to my eyes. Wonderful, poignant, touching. Beautiful.
I too was a bit choked up. A most special story.
I am a 41 year old male, and this wonderful story even had me chocking back tears. This story would make a wonderful telemovie.
Very moving. Brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for beautiful story-telling. A reminder that human emotion, even the erotic one, is much more than a simple sexual instinct.

Beautiful story, with a touch of class. No crudeness, nohumiliation, gang rape or adultery. Just a heartwarming well developed story about good-hearted people loving each other in a real way . Congratulations! 60 year old George
Evry time I read it, it brings tears t my eyes. This ia an expression of LOVE that rarely happens. Even if there was physical love involved, the content of the story is the love that a woman has for her husband and the surrogate that became her son if only in name. The fact that the "son" continued on with the vinyard was a tribute to the memory of a wonderful women and her husband and the vision that they had. Hopefully it continues to this day. I can remember those years. And I too have a wonderfull wife with whom I share a life.
It,s a very lovely story. Thank you for your excelence.
I think this story would make a wonderful film. Please think about developing a screen play. It is a beautiful story, and should make a beautiful film.
As a 42 year old man.....all I can say is Thank You!!
This is what writing is all about. It was sexy, warm, and very human. What a great gift you have. And, yes, it did bring tears to my eyes.
A beautiful story very well told. Thanks
I just reread the story again tonight. I first read it several months ago and happened upon it while browsing. I said to myself "that is well worth rereading". I really enjoyed it again. The story is very well written and is a truly romantic story of love, not just sex. Thank you again for writing.
I loved this story. It was so touching, it brought tears to my eyes. Excellent story telling.
A beautiful story... This story flowed and captured me in a way no other erotica has ever done. Well done and Thank you.
This a truly beautifull story, I got tears in my eyes when I read the last page. This is one of best I have read in a very long time. You have an incredible talent. A true master!
A GREAT story. I cried!!!!!
well,all i can tell about this story is that i learned a lot form it.i learned that TIME waits for no body and we cannot have a control over time.Time is the only factor which cahnges us all.the only factor which time cannot change is TRUE LOVE.this story didnt bring tears in my eyes.it brought tears in my heart.love you all fellows-SAM.
This story is so poignant i think everyone that reads it, really feels moved in such a great way that it touches everyones heart. Thank You.
I came to Literotica tonight in search of a fantasy to relieve the stress of the day, to find fuel for my imagination to consume, and instead, found this wonderful story. I would never have believed it if anyone had told me that I would be moved to tears this evening by the reading an erotic story, but indeed sir I have been. Everything about this story was absolutley PERFECT!
All I can say in closing is thank you and I am truely looking forward to reading more of your work!
Mike in Iowa
I've re-read it a few times and really do love it, your characters live and the story is compelling.
was really moved.really touching.came to jerk off...going back crying!!!
I have been whiling away a hot afternoon by browing through the site, and came upon this Diamond amongst the Rough (with respect to other stories and writers). This is true Erotica. Well done, and keep it up.
Loving Sex or Sexy Love, the only way to go.
Your story was wonderful, amazing how a little bit of love and understanding can go so far.
Iam moved to reply for the first time to any literature I have read. This must rate as a true work of art amongst the greatest ever written.Eric Stone Thank You.
Very touching story. It put a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye.
This is the most touching story of love and friendship I have read in a long time. I almost broke in tears as I finished it.
It reads real, sexy and compassionate, and it does not feel short at all even though it is. A masterpiece!
An engaging story, at once touching and erotic, very soul-satisfying. Thanks once again.
thank you for such a lovely story....like the rest..i nearly was in tears at the end...wonderful story.
Even after reading this for about the 20th time in the past four years, it is still one of the best pieces of writing I've had the privilege to admire.
I am hoping that you continue writing these wonderfully wistful, inspiringly sad but highly charged stories.
Kudos Ronde! This is by far one of the most touching and beautiful shorts I've ever read. It was very sexy and sublimnaly sensuel, worth revisits assuradely! In short loved the piece and I did not only gain a wellspring of good feelings, but as well gained some serious insight into the field of Erotica.
With Great Hopes and Good Feelings,
Thanks! I printed it out and sat down with the intention of pleasuring my self! By page 5, I was wondering where's the sex, but I could not stop reading! By the end, I had tears in my eyes! Excellent!
Great ,great story.It nearly brought a tear to my eyes.
