    A very very touching movie that helps to provide words and context for a unique and life changing event that happens to many thousands of children who have overwhelming difficulty dealing with their struggle of losing a parent or loving foster parent or substitute parent to a disease that is long and tough to endure.
    The complexity of emotion within this story was presented with all of the tenderness, harshness, and genuine confusion that swirls throughout a child’s experience when a parent dies. Yet . . . There is love; the saving grace for those fortunate enough to have a family or family member to understand and to comfort.
