Sisters, brothers, husbands and wives were lost but the survivors maintained their original intent and continued on in the lives. Stronger and weaker as a result of their loss.
Melissa:. Both Jonathan and I are grateful for all that you have done for us. I do not know how you were able to get through father's death and still create such a loving home We want you to come and stay with Kevin and I at the Four Sisters Ranch. We don't want you to be alone.
Mabel: I did what had to be done. The two of you gave me a reason to live. Thank you for the offer, but I have a modest place by the water that I enjoy. You will also want me to have my own place to keep my grandchildren.
Mabel: I want you to know the love for a child. Your father and I grew so much closer when you and Jonathan were born.
Melissa: I wish father was here to share this day with us
Mabel: Oh, he knows.
Jonathan: Yes, I can feel him when I'm out on the water.
