I missed the first 15 minutes of it. I loved this episode. I think QT did an excellent job. I'll admit that it made me cry. When Nick was talking into the recorder, that was so sad. I liked the aspect of seeing the way they care for each other, as well. I thought it was cool that Grissom could "read" what Nick was saying. I would love to know what he said. I somehow missed how Catherine got the money, too.
