There's something in my eye

I was doing fine.

I mean, it was sad and all.... Julie Roberts has just died and Sally Fields was in the waiting room giving instructions to her family about the funeral home and clothes... but I was okay with it.

Then, Sally Fields said, "Where's Jack Jr?" ... and someone said, "He's with his aunt.." and she took off running.

......and it hit me in the chest like a sledgehammer. I literally caught my breath. That's never happened to me before. But then, I didn't have children the last time I watched it...
