She also talks about how she used to play with his hair at night to get him to go to sleep, even when he was a little baby. She adds that he was always trying to be so grown up -- "Mr. Man." She starts to cry and tells Sonny she doesn't want to live in a world that would take Michael from her...she can't handle it.
