Why: Their cousins's dog just died.
When: Yesterday, noonish.
Fran (ageless): We used to have a black poodle. A big one, named Mary Ellen, when I was your age. She was great...sweet...nice. Anyway, I was there when she died. I was about ten and we came home from a trip...and she died.
Jack (9): How did you know she was dead? Did she collapse?
Fran: Yeah...it was really sad. I just sat there...and pet her. And tried to make her comfortable.
Jack: Well, it's the circle of life. I mean, you just gotta respect that.
