"It's a situation where basically a father figure wasn't able to be fully present, fully emotionally like ... 'I passed away and I don't feel like I've gotten to say everything that I needed to say,'" Henry says TooFab's exclusive sneak peek. "But to mom, very specifically, and it's like almost -- I don't want to say a shame around this, but it was a feeling of like 'Oh my God. I didn't get this chance.'"
In another room, Oakley's mom confirms that her mother raised the family, while Oakley told Henry that he "didn't know well or have much of a connection with" his late mother's dad. It's difficult for Oakley's grandfather to deliver more, as Henry explains that the message isn't for Oakley -- it's for his mom.
"There's almost a hesitance in coming through, is the way I would describe it," Henry tells Oakley.
As for why the words were so hard for so hard to say: Oakley's mom reveals that before her dad passed away, a stroke rendered him mute.
Henry then asks Oakley if he brought any objects and if anyone in the family served in the armed forces. Oakley remains clueless, but in the other room, Oakley's mom holds up a picture: It's her dad, dressed in military uniform.
