  • In the mid 1950's Dennis and Rachel found an building and renovated it to become New Brown Memorial. They constantly were improving the building which attracted a couple of regular attendees.
  • Dennis started feeling worse and worse, starting with complaining about how hot it was until it lead to him not eating. Rachel noticed this unusual behavior from Dennis and takes him to a hospital.
  • During their time in the hospital, Dennis' condition continues to worse. Rachel is deeply affected by this and begins to cry in the hospital hallways. Because of their interracial status, the doctors start criticizing them.
  • On another day at the hospital, Dennis and Rachel discuss bringing the kids to come and see him. Too many restrictions popped up for that to happen. So instead, Rachel brings all of the kids outside Dennis' window.
  • Days pass and Dennis appears to get better. But one day as Rachel is at home she gets a call from the hospital telling her that her husband has died. In denial, she pleads that it is impossible but the doctor tells her it was cancer and hangs up.
