I honestly feel that you get closer to the person, because you’re seeing them in a time of great sadness and weakness.  And, you can’t help, especially if you’re a parent, to have sympathy for your child.  But then you also want to see them still succeed.  So, you have to balance sympathy with motivating them to continue with life.  Our relationship now, everyone that interacts with us doesn’t know if we’re mother and son, brother-sister, they don’t know what our relationship is.  We laugh at that because that’s kind of the way we want it.  We don’t want people to know, because we do have so many different facets to our relationship now.
