Denver picks up his narration. Don Shisler invites Denver to a National Philanthropy Day ceremony at an upscale hotel ballroom, which he attends with Ron after Ron returns from Big Bend. While they are there, so many wealthy strangers approach Denver and express their thanks and congratulations for sharing his story at Deborah’s memorial that Ron jokes that he should become Denver’s agent.
Denver’s transformation is starkly apparent: in the last decade, Denver has gone from homeless and rejected by society, to now being celebrated by society and welcomed into an upper-class banquet as an honored guest. This again demonstrates the potential of even the most unlikely person to change and impact lives.
