This scene in Imitation of Life does it to me everytime. I couldn’t find the funeral scene at the end of the movie.

The song Angels Among Us by Alabama. It became my song for my son while we were surviving single motherhood together during my early 20’s.

God Bless The Broken Road by Rascal Flatts I have some very bitter sweet memories attached to that song. I think his voice is beautiful.

Also, the film Homeward Bound

I started crying 27 seconds into the Baby Mine- Dumbo & His Mommy video that’s linked in Jude’s details.

Another story that has the same effect on me is ‘The Ugly Duckling’.

The scene in “Mr. Holland’s Opus” where he goes to his son’s school with his student orchestra and Mr. Holland signs and sings the John Lennon song, “Beautiful Boy,” to his son. Every time I see it, I cry. As well, when they play his symphony at the end, I tear up. And, ever since 9/11, I can’t sing the National Anthem any more. I don’t know why, I just can’t.
