Make sure you have a glass of wine and a box of kleenex! I was amazed at Laney’s ability to show such deep emotion and then move on without disrupting the flow of the piece. Such a pro! I had to cry, blow, and laugh all at the same time!! It is so insightful about the process of grieving and remembering our lost loved ones. The hard won life lessons are so well described. Just a beautiful experience to watch. Its universality makes it so relatable everyone can connect to it.
