Amazing. Just a beautiful, touching, emotional episode. I think we all lost it at the end when we see Alicia's happy little face and hear Patricia Neal reading: "Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you all. If you can only remember me with tears, then don't remember me at all."
The script was gorgeous. It is impossible not to fall in love with all of the lovely characters we meet in this episode- John Jr., Carl, Alicia, etc. This was the kind of thing that summed up the late, great Michael Landon's view on life. Live life to it's fullest and live in the moment, because once it's gone, it's gone, and you can never get back to it. That man was a genius!
