** It would hardly be the first time a family lost its husband/father. What's happened to those left behind pretty much runs the gamut of all human experience. Some fall, some triumph.

** [[FixFic Try this]] - Andy used some of his small mountain of untraceable cash (the sum total of which may not be entirely necessary to live in Zihautenejo) to support them remotely.

Added DiffLines:

*After Andy's cell has been tossed, Norton returns his bible to him, saying "Salvation lies within". [[spoiler:It's not revealed until much later on in the movie that Andy's salvation ''literally'' lay within the bible, as that was where he was keeping his rock pick hidden.]]

* Tommy has a wife and infant daughter. Red surmises that "maybe it was the thought of them on the streets or his child growing up not knowing her daddy" that goads him to ask Andy for help with his GED. At least the novella version lets you hope he eventually left prison for good. As for the movie version ... What do you think happened to his loved ones after his death?

** Let's just pretend that Blatch ''also'' got what was coming to him. He picked a fight with the wrong guy one day and died in prison. There, [[FixFic fixed it]].

*** And who's to say that Andy, with his new fortune, didn't send someone after Blatch himself?

*** Also note that the Sisters are stealth predators, if their treatment of Andy is of any indication-- they seem to single out their prey and wait until he's alone and unaware before closing in. Neither Andy nor anyone else can be protected by his friends all the time.

*** Since the newspaper explicitly mentions corruption ''and murder'' at Shawshank, it seems very likely that Andy wrote about Tommy's death. That, if nothing else, will be investigated, and that will lead them to wonder why.

** If they attempted it, they could put themselves in danger of being attacked themselves. Andy's group also seemed to have a large amount of older or out of shape guys in it, not a group that would want to take on the younger, violent Sisters.
