Though we often expect to grieve the death of a family member or friend, these other significant losses can also cause grief. This paper will address the loss, grief, and mourning of characters portrayed in the film “I miss you already”. The author will discuss how Worden’s four tasks of grief are experienced by these characters and how the mourning process unfolds.
