This past week I flew to Texas with my Mom so we could attend my Grammy’s funeral. It was a very difficult week but once I got down there my friend from kindergarten picked me up so I could get out of the house for a while. Even though I told him I was doing okay, he knew that I was really struggling. I was in such a better mood after spending some time with him that I couldn’t stop thanking him for understanding what I needed. Even though it was hard for me to know that my Grammy had passed away, someone told me that I needed to be excited for her.

Daisy isn’t just crying about shirts she is crying about a way of life she has never experienced with Tom but just within the few hours she’s been with Gatsby.

I was in 7th grade and I was on spring break with my family. I had brought Lumpy with me on the trip. During our third day there my mom had us switch rooms for some reason. What I didn’t know was that I had left him in the first room we stayed in. I started crying and thought I had lost him forever.
His big brother took many risks that eventually caught up with him, leading him to his death. Robert is left alone with the responsibility of taking care of his parents who are devastated by the loss of their first born.

Everyone loved his speeches and said that maybe he should write a book but he said that it was his was his wife who encouraged him to write. Over the years, Nando went back up to the crash site to visit his mother and sister graves. His dad tries to go there at least once every year and visit the graves as
Often times after loss, “mourners are unable [to] regain a sense of normal, functioning life without their object of loss,” (McClinton-Temple). A successful stage of acceptance, however, helps in allowing the mourner to move on. Jack first begins to accept his daughter’s death when he attends “the first impromptu memorial in the cornfield...yearly now, he organized a memorial,” (Sebold 223). These memorials provide a sense of closure for him, and after the memorials, he no longer hunts down Mr. Harvey or complains to the police, but simply accepts that his daughter is gone. The point where Jack truly moves towards acceptance occurs when he sees the daffodils in the hospital and says “‘It’s Susie’s flower.’ My father smiled beautifully,” (280).
Lowe saw the improvement of her son. I almost cried because of her heart-melting reaction. She has been taking care of her son who had been in frozen state for 30 years continuously because of Mrs. Lowe’s unconditional love towards Leonard. She reads to him every day because he loves reading and she understands his need even though he is static. I felt the authenticity of the acting of Ruth Nelson as she played a heart-wrenching role.
I was thoroughly bored until perhaps a couple weeks into the semester, where things really started to get interesting. I had made extra money that week, and I had been entranced by the array of colorful paints in the craft store over the weekend. I ended up purchasing a several basic colors, a few brushes, and a two pack of 11 by 14 inch canvases. Monday, I brought them to class. I sat down at my seat, laying each piece of equipment out neatly and carefully, before I stared blankly at my canvas for at least twenty minutes before Mr. G wandered over, peering over my
