Two Thumbs Up
18 October 2003 | by ElysiaAerisSee all my reviews

I remember just turning on the tv one day to see Daddy's Dyin.. on. It reminded me so much of most of the families in the area, they might not see each other for long periods of time, but, when they do see each other it's like nothing has changed. The same fights exist, the same love remains beneath it all.

A truly touching story, it shows a good example of unconditional love within a family.
