My Dog Skip: Skip's Final Resting Place
"I'll NEVER get over the end of My Dog Skip. Skip watching Willie's bus drive away, him not being able to get himself up onto Willie's bed because of his arthritis, and Diane Lane's face as she watches him slowly breathing while he lays there, tired. And this line: 'I received a transatlantic call one day. "Skip died," Daddy said. He and my mama wrapped him my baseball jacket. They buried him out under the elm tree, they said. That wasn't totally true. For he really lay buried in my heart.' Then they flash back to him as a puppy! I just — I can't."
