Fred woke up in a hospital bed and noticed that he had been dead for two days straight and no one had noticed. The life he leads is bleak. And now he is too weak to get out of bed at night to watch the late night showing of "The Price Is Right".
Pam was Fred Ohm's former wife who had tragically taken her life when she found out that she was adopted. Fred woke up that day and found his wife had passed away on the kitchen floor. She said, "If one does not enjoy one's life then what's it for?"
Fred knew that he had ran himself right into a wall. Now with dust in his eyes he finds that he finally realizes what now is gone. He can't move on. He sits there and cries.
Sales was all Fred had ever known: to sell things with accents of chrome and leather seats and broken engines. Fred would often say, "You can always find a way to sell something that some one doesn't need." With emaciated promises he often would proceed.
Dan was Fred Ohm's former son and the day Dan turned 21 he told his father he was leaving. Fred would yell and scream that all young Daniel's dreams should be cast right out of his mind. "That book you made only in a day is not worth your time!"
The nurse walked into the room then cursed out the window to all the protesters outside waving their signs 'round. "Jesus freaks," she said, "get into their head that stem cells are a sin. The stem cells that they talk about could save your kids."
Fred for out of his cot and walked down the stairs into the parking lot. And, there in a tent, his savior had sent him something that he couldn't ignore. It was the lord.
Fred had found what he had lost back when he was a boy. And now with a ghost in his heart he finds that he's finally part of something that's whole. He now grows old and he now can die.
