Classic Sesame Street: I'm Gonna Miss You, Mr. Hooper!

I stumbled on this when I was searching for Sesame Street videos to share with Dipity. It may be that fatherhood has turned me into a blubbering wimp, but I cried when I first saw it. I was able to stop myself at choked up the next six times I watched it. When Dipity is older, I think I'll show this to her. It does a great job of dealing with death. The only problem I have with it is that the kid (aka Big Bird) accepts Gordon's "just because." Do kids really let something go after you whip out a "just because?" I can't help thinking that it is never that easy.
