We’ve all been there before; we’ve experienced that feeling of handling the loss of a loved one and what happens next. Earlier this year, my grandfather passed away after a hard fought battle with lung cancer. It was a rough time for me, coping with the fact that one of the greatest men in my life had gone on to greener pastures. On the day of the funeral, it was the first time in a while I had expressed feelings other than being upbeat or frustrated; I sat there in a pew and cried. No one can imagine how they will handle tragedy and what comes with it. Manchester by the Sea sums up many of the feelings we encounter when handling grief; it’s a simplistic, moving reminder that we must be able to rely on those around us in order to help us move forward.
