Thulani is sitting outside under Grandpa Nathi’s favourite tree.
He doesn’t feel like playing with Thembi. He wishes Grandpa Nathi could read him a story.
Thembi is angry and throws her doll. “Why did Grandpa Nathi have to die!”
Mommy pulls Thembi close on her lap.
“It’s okay to be angry,” says Mommy. “I miss Grandpa Nathi, too.”
Today Mommy, Daddy, Thulani and Thembi are wearing their best clothes to go to church for Grandpa Nathi’s funeral.
Everyone is coming to remember Grandpa.
Mommy holds Thembi’s hand as they sing Grandpa Nathi’s favourite songs.
Everybody sings and dances too.
