Description My Original painting and interpretation of the final scene in Season 5 Episode 10 When Hotch picks up jack and they both put a white Rose on Haley's Casket. W.S. Gilbert wrote its love that makes the world go round and if thats true the world spun a little faster with Haley in it. Haley was my best friend since we were in High School we certainly had our struggles but if theres one thing we agreed on unconditionally, it was our love and commitment to our son Jack. Haleys love for Jack was joyous, and fierce. That fierceness is why she isnt here today. A mothers love is an unrivaled force of nature and we can all learn much from the way Haley lived her life. Haleys death causes each of us to stop and take stock of our lives, to measure who we are and what we have become. I dont have all those answers for myself, but I know who Haley was. She was the woman who died protecting the child we brought into this world together and I will make sure Jack grows up knowing who his mother was, how she loved and protected him, and how much I loved her. If Haley was with us today she would ask us not to mourn her death, but to celebrate her life. She would tell us- She would tell us to love your families unconditionally and to told hold them close because in the end they are all that matter. I met Haley at the tryouts of our High Schools production of The Pirates of Penzance, I found our copy of the play and I was looking through it the other night, and I came upon a passage that seemed appropriate for this moment:Oh, dry the glistening tearThat dews that martial cheek;Thy loving children here,In them thy comfort seek.With sympathetic careTheir arms around thee creep,For oh, they cannot bearTo see their father weep..
