God... has created us.

But only God

truly knows

why we make the choices

that we do.

And sometimes life

leads us down a road

where there can be

no happy ending.

We make small choices that...

Later on in life

have consequences

that we could

never have foreseen.

We seek out pleasures

that very often

are tools for the destruction

of our souls.

Without God as our guide,

we wander unprotected

through this valley

of the shadow of death.

By our very natures,

we are weak.

Let those of us who

have gathered here today

reach down into

our own understanding

and there find a place

of forgiveness in our hearts.

So let us not judge our brother

James Richard Daniels.


let's join together

with his loving wife Marsha

and his brother Edward

in remembrance.

And let's learn

from Jimmy's life,

and from the tragedy

of his final years.

Though confused and lost,

with God's grace

and mercy,

Let's pray

that Jimmy's soul

has made its way

to God's holy place.

And let's take with us

the clear understanding

that there, but for

the grace of God, go I.

I'm sorry Marsha

for your loss. Can I help?

Thank you Father, no.

I've had time to prepare for this.

It wasn't exactly


Maybe if you'd stuck around,

we wouldn't be here today.

Who are you

to point at me?

Eddie, let's get

out of here.

- At least I was there for him.

- Y eah, that was the problem.

Marsha, are you all right?

Edward, are you all right?

No. Haven't you

noticed, Father?

I'm not.


Eddie, what happened

to Jimmy?

What, that's it?

Just like that?

"What happened

to Jimmy? "

You do two years in prison

without letting anybody visit you,

wouldn't even accept the letters

that Jimmy fucking wrote you, man.

Disappeared for two more years,

nobody hears nothing from you.

You just show up and you wanna

know what happened to Jimmy?

I heard he got himself clean.

I heard he had it licked.

How could you hear that?

You ain't been around.

You don't know

what it's been like.

- How you doing?

- You know me, I do all right.


You clean?

How could you ask me that?

I'm fine.

I just wanna know

how you're doing.

I guess I'm doing

about as good as I can do

without having my big brother

around to watch over me.

Eddie, I'm sorry.

You know, about being

away so long.

This whole thing

with Jimmy.

Really, I'm- I'm sorry.



I'm sorry too.



Hey, Eddie. I'm sorry

to hear about Jimmy.

He was a nice kid.

Nice kid.


Hey, Sal.

It's a lucky thing,

you coming back just now, huh?

I mean, in time for

the funeral and everything.

Yeah. Lucky thing.

I guess you're gonna be

a comfort to your brother.

You know,

like the old days.

Listen, uh...

I want you to have

a drink on me.

I mean for Jimmy, huh?

Thank you, Sal.

This is very generous.


Very generous, Sal.

Very generous!

Eddie, sorry about your brother.

That's a tough break.

Mike, a couple drinks

on me for Eddie boy.

Already been taken care of,

compliments of Big Sal.

Well, I'll be damned.

Look who's here.

- It's a free country.

- Yeah?

Vincent might not

think so.

Not today, Mike,

not today.

All right,

for Jimmy's sake.

God rest his soul.

Keep loverboy outta sight.


To Jimmy.

Did you see Carla?

I almost didn't

recognize her.

She looks cold.

Don't start with

that shit, all right?

Vincent, though...

Vincent looks the same.

Vincent's making

lots of money for people.

Big Sal gave his blessings

to work this whole neighborhood,

- so stay out of his way.

- Eddie?

I need to talk to you.
