He told his wife not to answer the door because it would be so horrible. But, she loved her son too much that she had to see her son. As she was trying to let her son in, Mr. White ran upstairs to get the paw and use his last wish to have his son be put into the grave for all eternity. As she finally got the door open her son was gone. She was heart broken that her son was not there to greet her at the door. All that she wanted was to see her son, but she did not realize what the sight would be. Some people call the paw a coincidence and some people actually think that it has powers. It is your decision to decide.
