You have to be commended for writing such a hard piece. Trying to write mourning and to express it in such a way to give depth to it and seem maudlin and everything else in between is really hard. Especially given that despite the 'stages of mourning' there isn't really a timeline, there isn't really a methodical approach as to how someone walks through their grief. However, I think your writing was bold and brave in tackling it and you didn't pull too short on telling the story and make for a quick premature exit.

Are Jessica, Justine and Bridget of the same age? If they are then this whole story will make a lot more sense to me.
Author's Response: heh, yes, they are. Jessica is maybe a year older, and Justine is definitely the younger one of the trio. They were best friends at Starfleet Academy and all recent graduates.
