I can see Deirdre in my mind, it's so evocative. This one never ceases to make me cry, but it's one of my favorites.

Just the name is so... because it brings to mind, not just that she is the widow of a superhero named Valor, but all of the widows and orphans of men and women who have sacrificed.

*hankie* Thank you.

That's exactly what I was aiming for. I'm glad it works.
