Writer Dean Wesley Smith routinely posts stories of his on his website for free for a period of two weeks, and at the moment he's offering Jukebox Gifts, which first appeared in the January 1994 F&SF. It's a wonderful, sentimental story, that moved me deeply when I first read it, and I highly recommend it to all.
That said, having now re-read it sixteen years after I first saw it, I find that I react somewhat differently to the choices the characters make in the story. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but back then, I still had my mom around, and I wasn't a father. My perspective on the story has changed a lot because of who I am now.
If anyone wishes to discuss the story after reading it, I'm game. So be warned, that there may well be spoilers in the comments.
