A return home. A love lost in the battles of the second world war. A simple conversation that changed everything.

1. You Made It

Is that you? It can't be...

It's me alright.

But... How?

Some sailor... a nice man. More than nice... my saviour. Took me on board of his tiny fishing boat. Me and ten others. Thought we'd tip over

I....

Me too...

Are you hurt? Let me have a look at that arm...

It's fine, Jake fixied... OW!!

I'm sorry

It's okay. No big deal. How have you been keeping? How's...?

He's doing fine,Al. I took good care of him-like I promised. Beside's he's 16 now. He knows how to look after himself.

He's still my little brother. Can I...

He's waiting at home for you. He didn't want to come...

In case I wasn't here?

Yes.

Trudy... I have to thank you for...

You'd have done the same for me.

No. Not just that. It's all those letters you sent me. All these years.... you cared. For me. 

Do you think I could help that?

I suppose not. I'm sorry. For causing you so much grief, all these weeks, months, waiting to find out if I was alive. Me... I'm not even that special.

Don't say that. I don't fall in love with any old codger you know...

Thanks. Hey... What's the matter? It's all ok now. Come here. I'll make it better. For all of us. Shhhhhhhhhh...There. Wipe those tears, and turn that frown upside down.

Hehehe...That's not even funny... I can't believe it. While you stayed strong all those years, here I am- crying my face off.

 I'm not strong. I'm like every other man out there. I just got lucky. It was... it was... God.. I can't even begin to describe it...

  It's ok.You don't have to say anything.

I'm just glad I have you now. Sometimes I think I'm going to lose it. I.. just...the bodies... all those bodies...

Shhhhhhh....here... have my hanky... I'll be here. And so will Fred. It'll be okay. Trust me. We'll stay strong, together.

Trudy...

Eric?

Thank you...

Let's go home...

There's just one more thing...

Anything

Will you marry me?

I knew you'd say that. Yes
