Tears are sometimes an inappropriate response to death. When a life has been lived completely honestly, completely successfully, or just completely, the correct response to death's perfect punctuation mark is a smile." -Julie Burchill

But Carrie Rush's life had not been lived completely honestly, completely successfully, or completely at all. So in this sense, it was okay to cry. The tears were appropriate.

Who would have though, Davey Rush, the freshman who played on the varsity sports. The boy who teachers smiled at, praised him for his good work. Davey Rush had friends. He had lots of friends. But nobody was closer to him, then his little sister.

With a relationship stronger then any other in his life, Davey lived to see his sister, who was diagnosed with cancer last year, smile and be happy. He didn't care what his friends thought, or how 'sissy' it looked to the others.

But the one time Davey isn't so quick to forgive...

The one time Davey doesn't give his sister a hug goodnight...

The one time, turns into the last time. And Davey is forced to live with the biggest regret and pain, for the rest of his life.
