Quotes

Patricia: In case you don't know there's a new federal law - The Family and Medical Leave Act - which protects the legal rights of parents like Nancy Muldenhower. I am fully prepared to make sure that law is enforced. I am also prepared to let the media know that you were threatening to fire Luke Muldenhower's mother while he is fighting for his life.
Baylor: Wow, er, just hold on for a second will you? I think there's been a big misunderstanding here

Heart touching....
27 June 2004 | by (Richmond - USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was extremely heart touching & you will need a box of tissues to watch it. I myself lost my father almost a year ago to cancer & it really touched my heart in so many ways with the story line & the emotions everyone felt. I was blessed with the special gift of being with my daddy when he died & sadly it was in my arms that he did. I would highly recommend this movie to everyone just to let them know that if they have experienced this situation, that they are not alone & it is okay to feel these emotions & thoughts. It brought back a lot of feelings & emotions for myself & can very well understand the heartache & feeling of emptiness it leaves you. Take a moment after watching the movie to feel grateful for what you have in life & remember it can happen to you or someone you know. Take into consideration that life is short & enjoy it day by day. If you happen to know someone who is terminally ill with this or any other kind of disease, make time for them & offer your support along with your sympathy & they will accept it with open arms. You will be surprised on how they respond.
