This is guaranteed to make you cry. If you ever watched Six Feet Under you may already be familiar with this clip but if you haven’t let me warn you (even without knowing the characters) I suspect you’ll cry long & hard.
This clip at the end of this fabulous series was part of a series of events that changed my life and put things in huge perspective for me. Not much in pop culture is worthy of such a statement but the final few moments made me realize how quickly things pass. It reiterated my love and passion for my then early burgeoning career as a photographer and truly solidified my feelings and thoughts in the direction I was going to head in my business.
So what’s so awesome about this clip? I’ll let it speak for itself….however the bestest part is "Breathe Me" by Sia which is a song that haunted me LONG after I finally deleted the episode off of TiVo (after watching it no less than 20x and subjecting my husband to my talk about it long after). Even after (what’s it been, 2-3 years?) all this time I still cried like a baby during it…and that my friends is enough to want to share it here, you know, since I’m all about savoring your time here & now.
So think about your day and what sort of memory making will you create for those around you while you watch this video clip.
Without a doubt, the BEST series finale of all time. LOVE LOVE LOVE it -thanks for posting. No dry eyes here, either!
this is without a doubt my favorite part of the series too!! it touched me on so many different levels.
beautiful post. i am so crying again from watching it lol
wow…. I have never seen that before. What a stunning bit of cinematography…… (jaw dropped… wiping tears…) Thanks for sharing. 🙂
i have only just started watching this series and have just finished season 2 – Nate was just going in for brain surgery – I am addicted……unfortunately I can’t watch this now or it will ruin it all for me….my fingers are itching to play it though…lol
ACK, i can’t watch it or read the comments because i’m still making my way through season 4 from netflix. now i’m really excited to finish watching this show! i’m so intrigued that it affected you this way…
Okay….WOW! I have never see that show, but now I totally have to get the DVDs. That was a very moving clip. Thanks for sharing it!
Yikes, that clip is as moving as it was when it first aired. Definitely one of the best examples of television. And such a good example of how quickly life goes by. With the recent loss of a generation of my family, that clip says it all.
