Sean Bean. My favorite Bean death, aside from Boromir and Ned Stark, is when he gets shot in the heart through a volume of Yeats poetry in Equiblibrium. A death any Irishman can be proud of.
Finally something uplifting for sons and mothers of sons. I'm going to put this in the book I'm going to start for him and give him when he graduates high school. It will be filled with memories from each school year and a letter from Joey and I each year. Then when Tucker gets older he can add to it too.
One of my favorite scenes from the Harry Potter books is when Harry gets sorted into his Hogwarts House by the Sorting Hat. You can feel Harry's extreme relief when he gets placed into Gryffindor! Anything but...
