That lady never imagine that lie would have ever come out. She will always regret that for the rest of her life.

Richard slowly began to miss his home and his younger brother Kenny, he realized that it is not easy to be away from home in a long period of time. For example, “It made me sad that Mama had written to Peewee to day that she loved me. She hadn’t even told me that when I was leaving.” (121).

Janet got so attached to her son during the gloaming, that it never occurred to her how soon Laird would pass away.

Accepting death is hard on everyone, but I understand how hard it must be for Janet because she never spent any time with her son until now, and she barely got to know him before he died. For all of these reasons, this is why I think it’s very important to spend time with loved ones, never lose memories, and learn how to accept death the way it is.

You could feel the nerves and anxiety of all the girls as we waited impatiently for the sign to drop and hopefully reveal our numbers. At that moment, all of us felt the same. Doubting ourselves, yet hoping for the best. I looked over at my roommate I had for the week as the sign fell before I looked at the sign.
