Julie: That's how I feel
Patricia: I know...but sooner or later your going to have to go on with your life. That's what Luke would have wanted. He would want you to be happy.

Great Movie Beautiful Actors
5 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Movie was a sad but great story of its time for Lifetime. The players in the movie contributed well with their abilities. The ending was sad but the sadness was near the ending with a life honoring moment. I enjoyed it even 8+ years after production. It is my wish that everyone who has not as of yet seen this movie try ti make time to see it. I truly believe it will not be a waste of time.
