- I had the pleasure

of knowing Dorothy Ann

for 40 years.

She was a classmate, my friend,

a member of our congregation,

and even my nurse a few times.

She was always dedicated to

whatever it was she was doing.

Always found the good in people.

She had more substance

than anyone I ever knew.

She was a proud mother,

and a good one, too.

And she will be

greatly missed by many.

- I told you not to come

around here, did I not?

- Listen, just let me

see him a little bit

before I go, okay?

- You do not get to

see him real quick

when it's convenient

for you, clayne.

Baby, go back inside, please.

Did you get my message

about the child support?

- Yeah, I got your message,

and like I told you,

if I don't have any money,

i can't send you any money.

- I'm so sick of

your excuses, clayne.

Look, all I ask of you is

that you just help us out

around here just a

little bit, but no,

you can't even do that

'cause you're too busy

drinking and smoking and--

- no, that's bullshit,

okay, because I'm sober now

and I quit smoking, so you

have to let me see him.

- Two for 100, good

for you, clayne.

- Okay, hey, buddy, come say

hi to your daddy real quick.

- Please stop making a scene

and just get out of here.

- Hey, buddy, hi,

- go back inside, please.

- He's my son, I have

a right to see him.

- No, you don't, you don't

have any rights around here,

okay, I have full custody

and you can't even pay

your goddamn child support.

- This is bullshit.

I'll see you when i

get back, okay, bud?

- Okay.

- I just don't think it's a

good idea for you to leave

when you're up for a promotion.

Our family needs this.

Why are you ignoring me?

- Look, I'm not, I just

don't want to argue

about it, alright?

- Why can't we leave

together in two months

when the summer comes?

We could go all

together as a family.

- Amy, we've been over this.

- No, we haven't.

You basically made this

decision on your own,

and you expect me

to be okay with it.

Babes, I know what it is

like to lose a mother.

But running from it, it's

not gonna help anything.

- Honey, come on.

- Steve, talk to

me, I am your wife.

What do you feel guilty about?

You've always been

there for her.

- Not enough, I wasn't.

- What's up, you little pirate?

Come here, oh, a

little indoor baseball?

- So what, you're just

gonna make me feel like this?

With clayne of all people?

- You wanna go outside?

- Yeah, come on, let's

go toss it around.

- Amy, he was basically

raised by her, too.

- You can't use

that money, Steve.

- We have plenty coming from her

life insurance money, all right?

She saved this for a

trip she can never take.

This is for her.

- I know you feel lost

right now, and I support you

honoring your mother, I do,

i just wish you would just

settle your emotions

- Amy.

- Before you go, i

don't want anything

to happen to you, okay?

- I'll be fine, alright?

Please, just understand.



- Hey, Amy.

- Hey, will you

load these for me?

- Uh, yeah, we have a minute.

- Thanks.

Come on, babe, you

understand, right?

We have to do this.

- You know this hurts

for me, too, right?

- Yeah.

- It won't stop you though.

- Love you.

I'll miss you, buddy.

You're the man of the house now.

- Will you be back

for my birthday party?

- Yeah, I won't miss it

for the world, alright?

- He's gonna be back soon, okay?

- Everything cool, brother?

- I don't know.

- Amy didn't seem

happy to see me.

- She's not happy

right now, period.

- you know, I don't

know, I just--

I'm telling you, man,

it scarred me for life.
