Eulogy Poem from this episode: REMEMBER ME "Remember me with smiles and laughter, / For that's the way I'll remember you all. / If you can only remember me with tears, / Then don't remember me at all." See more »


Julia Sanderson: Some of us are going to see him sooner than others. And the good Lord has decided that I'm going to see him very soon.
John Sanderson: What are you saying? Oh my God, Ma!
Julia Sanderson: Just a minute, young man! You be careful about the way you use the Lord's name! And I'll have none of that crying neither. There's no reason for someone to cry who's going to live in Heaven! You're crying for yourself and not for me!

This is probably one of the saddest episodes of the entire series (Though May We Make them Proud is probably much, much sadder). In this episode, we are introduced to Carl, John, and Alicia Sanderson, who soon become the adopted children of Isiah and Grace Edwards. Oh, but that's another story!

The story focuses on a widow with three children, Julia Sanderson. She learns early on that she has cancer of the lymph nodes and will soon die. She asks Charles to find a home for her children. The character is played by Patricia Neal, who is a talented actress. She does this part very well.

But with Julia, either you love her or you hate her. I tend to get upset with her a time or two at the way she breaks the news. She just blurts it out to Charles, then yells at her son for crying. I understood her getting upset for saying God's name in vain, but I think she should have let her children cry. It is a sad day, no matter how wonderful Heaven is. Her interesting personality stays with her through the entire episode, even when she announces her fate to the entire church.

The episode starts with a dark cloud over it as Mary and Laura become the rescuers of three unwanted puppies that are thrown into the river. Though a bit overplayed for my taste, it still warms you heart to see the girls in so much turmoil for these small, defenseless animals.

The first part of this episode ends with a sweet poem that Reverend Alden reads. We will hear it again in the second episode, but that time we tend to cry happy tears. Want to know what happens to the children? Have you been waiting for the marriage of the century? Well watch part 2!
