The Gift of a Lifetime

This is a love story. The ultimate love story. It starts with a grandfather and grandson beginning to really understand each other. The sad thing is that just when they begin to know each other, the old guy dies. He had confided in his young counterpart that he had failed to sing a song (his and her song) for his wife. Now this will not happen. But then comes the fulfillment of everything as the grandfather seemingly returns from the dead for one last date with Grandma. The go back to the restaurant where they met. They dance. They laugh. And he gets to go to the piano and sing the song to her. Actually, this isn't all that interesting until we are treated to a wonderful conclusion. An episode to remember.
