As Meg listened, she felt that she had done well; for not only did the moment comfort her with the assurance that John's last lullaby was sung by the young voices he loved so well, but in the faces of the boys she saw that they had caught a glimpse of the beauty of virtue in its most impressive form, and that the memory of the good man lying dead before them would live long and helpfully in their remembrance. Daisy's head lay in her lap, and Demi held her hand, looking often at her, with eyes so like his father's, and a little gesture that seemed to say, "Don't be troubled, mother; I am here;" and all about her were friends to lean upon and love; so patient, pious Meg put by her heavy grief, feeling that her best help would be to live for others, as her John had done.
- Little Men, Chapter 19
In this episode, John Brooke suddenly passes away, and his funeral is being held. For those of you who have read the Little Women novel, the type of person that married Meg and is the father of Demi and Daisy deserves the beautiful and dignified funeral that he got, with a memory that will last many lifetimes.
For those of you who haven't been to a Christian funeral in the United States, the hymn that Nat plays during the funeral is called "Amazing Grace". There are many variations to this song in terms of the words that are sung to the melody.
