This story was depressing from the beginning. In this story, Esperanza tells us about how her father's father has passed away and she describes how her father reacted after finding out about the tragedy. I really related to this story because whenever something happens like this in our family, its really hard to figure out what to say when you've never seen the person cry before. One of the lines I liked was “I have never seen my papa cry and I don't know what to do." This line really stood out to me because this time is very fragile and you have to be careful what you say or do and I feel as Esperanza handles it well. She also describes about how her father will go to Mexico and attend the funeral. I really liked how she described what was going to be there like for word to word about the roses and how everyone will be dressed in black and white. It was a sad story but I think it was very well written because sad stories such as death in the family are very difficult to discuss.
