It is monstrous, a young boy seeing his mother like that. I would have given my life Lawrence, that you hadn't found us that night. You must believe me when I tell you this Lawrence. You do believe me, don't you? I loved your mother with a passion like the burning of the sun. Her death finished me, I was devastated. But I still prowl the house at night, searching for her. But I'm dead all the same. Look into my eyes Lawrence, you see that I am quite dead.
The Wolfman (2010) by Joe Johnston
