Chapter 19 Summary

Bud recounts finding his mother dead four years ago and how she didn't suffer. He is concerned that Mr. Calloway and Miss Thomas both are clear that although she is dead, she went peacefully. It is not until this chapter that more detail is given as to how "Angela," Bud's mother, was ill for several days and finally died after at least six days of being ill. He goes to get his Mother's picture and finds Mr. Calloway crying in his room. Significant detail of the sounds of Mr. C's crying are given, which allows one to really "hear" Mr. C's pain. Bud tries to comfort Mr. Calloway in his first attempt to be his grandson. This is the first time they truly share something in common, but Mr. C is not ready for the closeness and shrugs off the touch.
