Via Reddit:

Two things struck me as particularly poignant, when taken together:

“I played Carol as the mother I always wished I had,” she once said, “as the mother a lot of people wished they had.”
The youngest of 10 children born to a tobacco farmer in rural Indiana — and whose mother abandoned the family when she was 12 — Henderson enrolled the American Academy of Dramatic Arts at age 17.

 

May we all embrace, and connect with, our families. We might all be a bit nuts, but we can (almost always) find the love:
