In this story, Jacqueline Woodson again writes about a topic that is a reality in our lives: the death of a loved one.Here, a young girl, Sarah, faces the truth and pain of losing her grandfather with whom she has built a very strong connection and bond.Together they had planted and worked in their garden, and once explained, "like us, a part of [the Earth:] next dies.Everything and everyone goes on and on."Although Sarah experiences the sadness and pain of his death, she shares her memories and feeling with her grandmother, as they grieve together, sewing quilts and harvesting the vegetables from the grandfather's garden. The words, "everyone goes on and on" is a message to readers to accept the reality of death, but live in the memories of this loved on forever and ever and you share your grieving with others.
