The stamp on the letter Randall finds in William's apartment is the John Steinbeck commemorative, which was issued in 1979 and carries a value of 15 cents. The first class letter postage rate was 15 cents from 1978-1981. The photo referenced in the letter was of an approximately 10 year old Randall (approximately 1990) and is not consistent with the time frame of 1978-1981 when the postage rate was 15 cents.

Olivia Maine: How does it feel to be dying?
William Hill: It feels... like all these beautiful pieces of life are flying around me and I'm trying to catch them. When my granddaughter falls asleep in my lap I try to catch the feeling of her breathing against me.

I am connectinf with this show on such a deeply emotional level...
28 September 2019 | by aarongnrSee all my reviews

And I also know why.

This show represents everything that I hope to achieve in my life. I want to have a family, I want to have kids, I want to have grandchildren.

It's not that there isn't any of that in other shows, but this show is something special. I can't really explain it, but I have teared up two or three times within the first couple of episodes.

Before this show I would've said its a rare thing for me to tear up, but I'm sure by the time I've caught up its gonna be completely normal.

Love this show to death so far.
