Jennifer thanks him. Chad adds that he's been putting Abigail's stuff away and had to stop because it was taking too much out of him. Chad says he's putting boxes in the attic and he thought he was done until he went to his dresser and found a watch which he got the day after he proposed to give to her after their wedding anniversary. Chad says he can't put it away so he hoped Jennifer would take it. Jennifer thinks he should hold on to it for Thomas. Chad encourages her keeping it so Jennifer agrees.
