    This episode without any doubt was a tear jerker. Yes, we all grieve in are own ways. I had tears in my eyes as I watched Florida socializing with others in her apartment. The children knew that their mother needed to cry, but Florida may have felt she didn't have time to cry because she was now the lone leader of of the Evans'family. Being raised by single mother myself, I can really relate to this program. I am aware of the struggles and trials a single parent must endure. My heart goes out to all the single parents, because I can never forget the struggles my own mother has to overcome.moreless
  • It\'s the day of James\' funeral, and the family grieves differently.

    This episode I first watched when I was nine years old. I saw it again tonight, and it\'s just as heartbreaking and numbing as the first time. Florida shows no emotion, and her children can\'t understand why. Although Florida's "damn!damn!damn!" outburst has been parodied, her pain is so realistic that it moves me to tears. This episode should be included as part of TV history.

    This episode was a true classic. It was sad that James Evans was killed in a car wreck. I was shocked when the show killed a character when the show is called good times. If it was JJ that was in the car wreck, I woulda been throwin a fit, and the show would b called Bad Times.
