Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] My parents were used to being together. My father's work kept him close to home when we were a young family so there were always times in the day to share a smile, or a touch, or a special look between them. Now those times were nearly gone. Work took my father away from home more often and for longer periods of time. The separations were hard on them both.
