SARA: Shhh! Please. I’m sorry, but we’ve got to be very quiet, or we’ll frighten the spirits away! Come, let’s everyone hold hands. You too, Becky. Let’s close our eyes and think. (Pause) What do you suppose Becky’s mother would want to say to her? I think she’d say a bit about where she is now, where there are fields and fields of flowers, and a soft wind is always blowing.
