I just watched this episode tonight. I like the fact that they replaced the ominous "bumper" tone with Christmas bells...The lasting effect that losing someone you love can clearly be seen in both Frank and Jordan, who goes from being ( most understandably) anti-Christmas at the beginning of the show to most poignantly giving Rose and Lhasa the gift she had been keeping for her mother. That Frank allows Eddie to escape with the girls provides the perfect ending for his seasonal episode. Frank and Jordan both arrive at the conclusion of the show with the understanding that, although Catherine may be lost to them forever physically, emotionally & spiritually she will always be with them. 

For a program that never failed to show viewers the horrors that the world is capable of, it was a stroke of genius to show us two beloved characters, each alone in their own grief, starting to heal not only through love, but indeed through what can only be called a miracle.

Well done.

I couldn't have said it better myself.  The only thing that I would change is the word "lost" and "spiritually."  As long as someone is remembered, they are never lost.  They may no longer be here to touch, or listen to their mind and emotional realms speak, but the spirit remains.  You can break a spirit, but you cannot destroy or kill it.  A spirit lives forever because it is fathered by the Divine Spirit.  And spirits are not bound by time or space, so they can and are always with us.  This is a truth I have learned after all of my family and relatives have crossed over into the spirit realm, including one of my four children.  I am always aware of their presence.

Healing through Divine Love, and Divine Intervention.

Yes, I agree, well done.

too long for  those who grieve; too short for those who rejoice.

But for those who love, time is eternity."
