to:

\n* Ruth [[spoiler: dies of natural causes with George and her two remaining children by her side.]] The reaction of each, particularly Claire's look of disbelief and George's breakdown, are gut-wrenching.
* Keith [[spoiler: is the only cast member not to die of old age. Instead, he is shot to death in an armored truck robbery.]] A somewhat sneaky tear-jerker comes up immediately later, as Claire [[spoiler: finally gets married to Ted]], what's implied to be not long after Keith's death. It's obvious in David's face that his mind is on his own lost partner as he sits at the front of the [[spoiler: wedding]] very visibly alone. [[spoiler:(And as Claire's only living male relative, it's very likely he was the one that 'gave her away' as well.)]]
* David himself [[spoiler: dies of a heart attack at a family reunion, some twenty years later.]] Like many of his family members, he sees a vision of a loved one before passing on. In his case, though, it's Keith, still young and in his prime. Depending on who the man sitting next to David is, it's possible that either: 1.) He found another partner but never completely got over Keith's loss, or 2.) He didn't find another partner ''because'' he never got over Keith's loss.

* The final montage. ''Series/SixFeetUnder'' ends with Claire driving off to New York to start a new life. As she drives, she imagines how everyone's lives might turn out... and, since this is ''Six Feet Under'', it ends with the deaths of everyone in the main cast.

]] Although, given that most of the main cast are given long, full lives that are at least implied to be happy before they pass away, the scene is also simultaneously a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.

* Much, much later that season, Nate tells Ruth [[spoiler: that he's seriously ill on the week of his surgery. She expresses her frustrations that he didn't tell her earlier because: "There just so many months I could have loved you better."]]

*Also in the second season is the episode "The Invisible Woman", about a woman who had virtually no people in her life. Ruth gathering her family so that Emily Previn has a service might count as heartwarming, but when she breaks down at the end of the episode in front of her children's photos after realizing she's not so different from Emily, it's downright heartwrenching.

* The episode after [[spoiler: Nate dies. When Brenda hands Maya over to Ruth and tells her she'll be happier with her]].
* [[spoiler: After Nate dies, Maya asks Brenda at least twice 'Where's my daddy?' in such a sad and innocent little voice. As if that wasn't sad enough, Brenda decides not to sugar-coat it like her mother suggests and says flat-out 'Daddy's dead. He's not coming back'.]]
* [[spoiler:Nate's funeral on its own]] is a massive tearjerker. David gets a panic attack and is unable to finish his eulogy, and, later on, can't leave the car [[spoiler:for Nate's burial]]
* [[spoiler: Ruth refuses to let Nate's burial go on without David and patiently waits with him until he's composed enough.]] Also doubles as heartwarming.
* Brenda coming home from [[spoiler: Nate's burial]] to what she thinks is an empty house, but to her surprise, Billy's waiting there for her. She just crumples into sobs after holding back for most of the episode.

** There's also David breaking his composure immediately after the funeral as he rebukes Nate for attempting to assert an influence over the family after living independently for so long.

* Gabe discovering his brother accidentally killed himself with a gun. Without us actually seeing anything, he stares into the room in utter horror, only able to say "Fuck!" over and over.
