Cry

The sign for "cry" is made by placing one or both index fingers under your eyes. 

Bring your fingers down over your cheeks a few times.

Heather:  I've seen this with an alternating movement.

DrBill:  Yes.  You'll see lots of variation on this one.  For example, using a "4-handshape" on each hand instead of just the "index fingers" is a way of indicating that you are crying a lot. 
Or start with "S" handshapes and then suddenly move them downward and change them into "4-handshapes" with the fingers wiggling as you move the hands downward to indicate you are having a "major bawl."
