Mamaw and Papaw have agreed to take me shopping for Mackenzie's birthday present, and we're heading out to The Square at the breakneck speed of thirty-four miles per hour."Slow down, Frank," my mamaw commands, patting my knee. "We've got precious cargo."He eases up on the gas and I throw my head back and close my eyes, anxious and frustrated."

2. "Going home in the trolley, Francie held the shoebox in her lap because Mama had no lap now. Francie thought deep thoughts during her ride. 'If what Granma Mary Rommely said is true, then it must be that no one ever dies, really. Papa is gone, but he's still here in many ways. He's here in Neeley who looks just like him and in Mama who knew him so long. He's here in his mother who began him and who is still living. Maybe I will have a boy some day who looks like Papa and has all of Papa's good without the drinking. And that boy will have a boy. And that boy will have a boy. It might be there is no real death.' Her thougths went to McGarrity. 'No one would ever believe there was any part of Papa in him."

The sweet tinkle of Electra on the bass and Iphy on the treble with Mama's voice counting, "One and two and …" as the twins had their piano lesson inside the trailer.

Mama only handed him one of her trademark looks of disgust, followed by the most common ration of her vocabulary. "Saukerl."

Life is a gift from the Gods. Why give it back by killing yourself?They don't want you to give their gift back to them.They want you to keep their gift,give it value,develop it and make it into something that will be remembered.Some people ruin their gifts.They do not care. Do not run away from challenges..face them. The Gods want you to fight the challenges and to overcome them. Challenges are yet another part of life.Preserve.develop and let your life be remembered.Make use of your gift instead of storing it away in a place where no one will see."
