Family is very important:never let them down ever.
19 August 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This episode is very interesting and it has a bell of truth to it. An old woman Amy Hurn's sister is having her 80 birthday party but the children can't make it again. After learning this the old woman can't take it anymore and passed away. At the funeral the children were there and so Amy thought why is it that they can make it to a funeral when your dead but not to a birthday party when you're still alive.... Bc her children was exactly the same she haven't seen them in ages. So Amy starts to work on a plan she is going to let doc Baker and Charles wire her children that she has passed away this way she knows they will come to her "funeral" and she can really see them for the last time before she is "really gone" This episode is good and it has a good lesson to it. Always visit your family and mother when your grown BC you never know when its going to be the last time your going to see them always make time for you parents they were always there for you so you should be there for them too....... Now continue to episode 7
