Before anyone realized it, five years had gone by.

Luke and Lorelai married in the spring after Emily and Richard's death. Almost one year exactly from their first official kiss. Lorelai was happy that day, but felt a pang of regret that her parents were not there to share it with her.

Luke gently reminded her both sets of parents, his and hers were present in spirit and the couple agreed to set up photographs of their parents at the ceremony.

There wasn't a dry eye in the house when Lorelai and Luke, Stars Hollow's own "royal couple" said their vows and finally became sealed in matrimony.

Lorelai smiled at the raindrops that fell even so slightly a she and Luke danced, and Lane appropriately changed the music from Luke and Lorelai's song, Reflecting Light to a sweet country turn, Holes in the Floor of Heaven.

Three years later, Lorelai still had the tune in memorized and she often hummed it to her baby boy Evan once he was born. Sometimes Luke would get his guitar out and pick along. Emily and Richard as well as Luke's parents were very much apart of young Evan's life. Lorelai wouldn't have it any other way.

As for Rory and Jess, they were still pulling strong. Jess proposed not long after Evan was born but the couple decided on a long engagement. They were married in August after Rory and Jess graduated. Rory's two year old brother serving as ring bearer. He nearly stole the show away from the happy couple.

Rory started working as a political correspondent for the Hartford Herald. It wasn't her dream job, but it turned out to be because it let her be with Jess.

Jess graduated with honors from Southern Connecticut State with a psychology degree. He planned to get his Masters and turn Richard and Emily's old house into the Gilmore Foundation Respite for Troubled Teens. The dream was a long way off, but it was within his reach.

It seemed they all got what the dreamt of. Luke got Lorelai, Lorelai got Luke and her inn, Rory got Jess and her job as a reporter and Jess got Rory and so much more.

Now as he stood beside Rory's hospital bed and watched his wife nurse their new son, Lucas Richard Mariano he couldn't help but send up a prayer of thanks to not only God but to Emily and Richard, for their passing made this all possible and Jess was sense wherever they were, they were glad their paved paradise yielded so much more than a parking lot.

Holes in the Floor of Heaven lyrics

One day shy of eight years old,
When grandma passed away.
I was a broken hearted little boy,
Blowing out that birthday cake.
How I cried when the sky let go,
With a cold lonesome rain.
My mom smiled, said: "Don't be sad child.
"Grandma's watching you today." "'Cos there's holes in the floor of Heaven,
"And her tears are pouring down.
"That's how you know she's watching,
"Wishing she could be here now.
"An' sometimes if you're lonely,
"Just remember she can see.
"There's holes in the floor of Heaven
"And she's watching over you and me." Seasons come and seasons go,
Nothing stays the same.
I grew up, fell in love,
Met a girl who took my name.
Year by year, we made a life,
In this sleepy little town.
I thought we'd grow old together,
Lord, I sure do miss her now. But there's holes in the floor of Heaven,
And her tears are pouring down.
That's how I know she's watching,
Wishing she could be here now.
An' sometimes when I'm lonely,
I remember she can see.
There's holes in the floor of Heaven,
And she's watching over you and me. Well my little girl is 23,
I walk her down the aisle.
It's a shame her Mom can't be here now,
To see her lovely smile.
They throw the rice, I catch her eye,
As the rain starts coming down.
She takes my hand; says: "Daddy don't be sad,
'Cos I know Mama's watching now." "And there's holes in the floor of Heaven
"And her tears are pouring down.
"That's how you know she's watching,
"Wishing she could be here now.
"An' sometimes when I'm lonely,
"I just remember she can see.
"Yes, there's holes in the floor of Heaven,
"And she's watching over you and me." Watching over you and me. Watching over you and me. Watching over you and me.
