EXT. CEMETERY - DAY
Four days later
The graveside service for Mark Larson has just finished. His
family stands beside the casket, which has not been lowered
yet. It is covered with flowers. Emily holds the new baby.
Little Danny is as good as gold,
Em. Not a peep out of him. Quite
a little bruiser, isn't he? Kyle
was eight and a half pounds, and
I thought he was big!
He's being good because I fed him
just a half hour ago, mom. When
he's hungry, I'm sure you can
hear him for blocks. He doesn't
ask to be fed, he demands it!
Emily and her mother chat quietly. estelle approaches them.
Hello Colleen, Emily. He looks so
much like David did when he was
born. I'm so glad the weather has
held for us. we seem to be
enjoying Indian Summer.
I know you didn't come over here
to talk about the weather. I can
tell when there's something on
your mind, Mama Estelle. Can you
tell us what it is?
Well, I just wonder if Mark has
showed up in any of your dreams
since you...saw him last.
The baby begins to fuss. Emily hands him to her mother.
Mom, will you put him in his
carriage, please? after awhile,
holding him is like holding a ten
Colleen carries the baby away.
I've been dreaming about him, but
not in any interactive way like
before. He's been on my mind a
lot, and my dreams are mostly
fond memories. I don't think he's
going to appear again in spirit,
or what ever he was that day.
When he said goodbye, it sounded
final. He said that he was being
called away, so I think he's gone
on to a better place than here.
I haven't been home alone since he
passed on. Colleen went over with
me and we got a few clothes .
I've been staying with your
parents. I haven't had the
strength to face that empty house
Mark said that he thought it was a
good idea for us to move into your
house. He didn't ask us to do it
outright, that just wasn't his
way, but I'm still taking it as
his last wish.
You're right, Mark would never ask
something like that for himself,
he wouldn't want to impose. For
me though, he would ask anything,
do anything, give anything. Is
that something you would
David and I discussed this, and
we've decided to move in with you
unless you decide otherwise. We'll
pay rent, utilities, taxes,
whatever you say. We want to be
there for you, but we don't want
to be a burden.
Estelle puts her arm around Emily and kisses her on the
Neither one of you even know how
to be a burden. It's just not in
your genetic make up. I would be
thrilled to have the three of you
live with me. It'll be wonderful
having a baby in the house.
Talking about babies, Judy just
told me that she's pregnant! It
looks like our little Larson will
have a little Maxwell to play with
the same as his daddy did.
