[narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal
When you're part of a family where eleven people live under one roof, you're not likely to spend much time thinking about loneliness; you're more likely to be looking for ways to have even a few minutes by yourself. But, I remember a visitor who showed us all the face of loneliness, not only her own, but that of a man close to us, a man we had, until then, taken for granted, but had never really known.
