The Passing of Grandmother's Quilt by Cat Rambo

I love when a story creates a stir in its readers.  Over at Everyday Fiction Cat Rambo's flash piece, "The Passing of Grandmother's Quilt", created just such a stir.  The commenters either loved or hated it which, for me, shows the mastery of the writer.  You can read the story here

sandra, I went over and read the story because of you. Then I posted this comment:
Inspired. Wrenching. Sublime. I don't think I've read a short story that moved me more emotionally. Beautifully done.

Cat Rambo is a wonderful writer, Elaine, and I usually stop to read when I run across one of her stories online.

I'll put myself in the liked it category. But I would have had an editorial conversation with Cat about one single word, "snapped". I'm not sure snapped is the right word as it implies a lot that may not be there in the story tonally.

Funny how our word choices affect a story, Brian. I know I read a story over and over just changing a word here or there to make the story better.
