  • Reflections on Grandma

    7.0
    The family reflects on how much they love Grandma after she falls suddenly and mysteriously ill.



    Mary Ellen learns a valuable lesson that will enhance her career in nursing.



    This touching episode is worth a view, if only to see the enduring love that Zeb has for Esther Walton.

    • Opening Narration: I remember so well the carefree designated crossroads of my life; the points where one could stop and thoughtfully consider which road to take. But there were those other particles of time in which decisions were made more quickly and in one snap judgment irrevocable forces were set into motion. I especially recall such a time affecting my grandmother and my sister Mary Ellen.

    • Closing Narration: Our grandmother recovered to live long good years with us, and Dr. Vance decided to remain on Walton's Mountain. People there who had always appreciated him began to show it by paying him with money when they could. Mary Ellen stayed in nursing, where she surely belonged, to learn all the things she had to learn.
