Period 8, Post 5: "Letting the Light Back In"

Hi, everyone!! I'm sorry that I'm late posting this week's question; I'd planned on posting it before leaving for my cousin's wedding on Friday, but I ran out of time, and then yesterday was crazy-busy, too.

Anyway, this past week we were introduced to Grandma Lynn, and how she "lets the light back in" to the Salmon family's house after Susie's death. We also began exploring the metaphors of light and dark for life and death, respectively. For this post, I want you to think of one example from the text of The Lovely Bones that illustrates members of the Salmon family being stuck in their grief over Susie's death, and one example showing them moving on with their lives. Give an explanation of how each example accomplishes this.

This will count as the last homework for the first marking period.
