Chapter Twenty-Three (Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom)

CHAPTER TWENTY-THREE – The Thirteenth Tuesday We Talk About the perfect day.
112 171 After some deliberation, Morrie and Charlotte decided that cremation would be the best option. Who did they decide should conduct the funeral service? Charlotte and Morrie decided that Al Axelrad, the rabbi from Brandeis and a lifelong friend, should conduct the funeral service.
113 172 During their thirteenth Tuesday together, Morrie found himself heavily fatigued. Why was this? Morrie was not sleeping very well and consequentially found himself fatigued during the day. He would only be able to get a couple of hours sleep before he would wake up in a severe coughing fit and would require assistance from one of his carers before trying to get back to sleep.
114 174 There had been a development in the treatment of ALS however this new treatment would not be available to Morrie. Why was this? The new treatment would not be available for Morrie because he was ‘too far gone’ and the medication wouldn’t even be ready for some time.
115 175 With his condition rapidly worsening, Albom asked Morrie what he would do if, miraculously, he was granted twenty-four hours respite. How did Morrie answer this question? Morrie told Albom that he would have what might appear like a rather ‘normal’ day. He simply wished to wake up, have breakfast do a little exercise before entertaining friends and family. After a walk in the afternoon, Morrie would spend his evening dining and dancing with his friends and family.
116 176-178 Before Albom left the house, Morrie asked if he could bring up a delicate topic. What was this? Morrie brought up the subject of Peter, Albom’s brother, who was still refusing to see him. He suggested that it may be because Peter didn’t want Albom to make any sacrifice.
117 180 Morrie told Albom a story about two waves in the ocean, one of whom was concerned that he, like all other waves, would soon crash and from then on be nothing. How did the second wave in Morrie’s story comfort the first. The second wave in Morrie’s story comforted the first by telling it that it was confused. ‘You’re not a wave; you are part of the ocean’.

Chapter Twenty-Four (Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom)

CHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR – The Fourteenth Tuesday We Say Good-bye.
118 181 The day before the pair’s fourteenth Tuesday together, what did Charlotte phone Albom to tell him? Before their fourteenth Tuesday together, Charlotte phoned Albom to tell him that ‘Morrie wasn’t doing well’. Albom correctly interpreted this message to mean that Morrie had now reached his final days.
119 182 When Albom arrived to see Morrie, he was forced to wait sometime alone. Why was this? Albom was forced to wait sometime alone because, highly uncharacteristically, Morrie was still asleep when he arrived to see him.
120 184 When Albom was finally told that he could see Morrie, he discovered that he was still in bed and unshaven. Albom realised with horror that it was time to say goodbye to his dear friend, however he couldn’t think of a way to do it. Albom pre-empted this. How did he say good-bye? Morrie told Albom that the way ‘we say good-bye’ is by saying ‘I love you’.

Chapter Twenty-Five (Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom)

CHAPTER TWENTY-FIVE – Graduation.
121 187 With the end near, Morrie’s entire family gathered around him before he died on the fourth of November. Despite their best attempts, Morrie died at a moment when the entire family was out of the room. Albom believes that Morrie did this deliberately. Why did he think this? Albom believed that Morrie waited for the moment when he was all alone to die deliberately because he did not want anyone to witness the event and be haunted in the same way that he was after his mother’s death.
122 188 The funeral was held on a damp and windy morning in front of a small select group of well wishes despite many more wanting to attend. After the funeral, Albom tried to hold a conversation with Morrie in his head in the way in which his old friend had wanted. Albom found it remarkably natural before noticing something which explained this. What did Albom notice? Albom noticed that it was a Tuesday, which accounted for how natural their conversation was.

Chapter Twenty-Six (Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom)

CHAPTER TWENTY-SIX – Conclusion.
123 190 Of the very many things which Albom learned from Morrie, what was perhaps the most clear? The clearest lesson which Morrie taught Albom was that ‘there is no such thing as “too late”’. This was made clear by Morrie in his own life as he was evolving and changing right until the end.
124 191 Not long after the funeral, Albom managed to get in contact with David, his brother in Spain. He clearly explained to his brother that he wanted contact because he loved him. How did David respond to this? David responded very positively by sending him a fax a few days later, relating his condition and how he was.
125 191 Morrie and Albom conceived the idea of their ‘final thesis, Tuesday’s With Morrie together. Both were delighted when a number of publishers approached the pair. What did the publisher’s advance contribute towards? The publisher’s advance contributed towards Morrie’s ‘enormous hospital bills’.

Chapter Four (Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom)

CHAPTER FOUR – The Audiovisual
20 18 Albom tells his readers that he had lost contact with Morrie and did not know about his illness. How did he find out about it? Albom discovered about his former professor’s illness when it was featured on ‘Nightline’, a weekly television show hosted by Ted Koppel on ABC-TV.
21 20 Before agreeing to be featured on ‘Nightline’, Morrie insisted upon asking Ted Koppel, the show’s presenter, two questions. What were these? Morrie asked Koppel two questions before agreeing to be featured on Nightline. The first of these was ‘Tell me something close to your heart’. The second was ‘Tell me something about your faith’.
22 21 How many times had Albom seen ‘Nightline’ before agreeing to feature on the show, and what opinion had he formed of the show’s host, Koppel? Albom had only seen the show twice. Based on these occasions he had thought that Koppel, the show’s host, was a narcissist.
23 21 During the interview for ‘Nightline’, Morrie told Koppel that he had decided to live through the disease in the best way that he could. What characterised how Morrie tried to live what remained of his life? Four things characterised how Morrie tried to live with the illness: dignity, courage, humour composure.
24 22 During the interview, the two discussed many different topics. One of these topics was Morrie’s increased dependency on other people. At this point, Morrie felt the need to ask Koppel’s permission before revealing a fact to the camera. Despite the potentially shocking nature of what Morrie had to say, Koppel gave him permission. What was this fact? Morrie told the audience of Nightline that ‘one day soon, someone’s gonna have to wipe my ass’.
