Did Ari's "girlfriend" attend the funeral?
The whole ceremony looked like they had never divorced... while reality is somewhat different and it's a pity that the girls hadn't met their father for two weeks before Christmas and they spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with the "shaman" instead of their father...
I hope it's a wake-up call for Martha L., it's time to grow up at the age of 48.
Maud Angelica seems to be a very talented and strong-minded girl, on the basis of her mimicry she could be a great actress as well.
I can only hope Ari could feel the love and loss today....their faces, just tears you up. Why wasn't Victoria there? I understand the Denmark cousins are having their NY kurs, but I find it sad the entire families didn't turn out to support the family.
It is a pity the girls had to spend Christmas with their selfish mother and her con/shamman. Harold and Sofia look gutted, as do MM from Norway, ML looks like she's putting on an act JMO.
I have no hope she'll ever grow up and care about anyone but herself. She's spent the last 48 years being coddled and spoiled, she'll not grow up now. Her girls are old enough to be figuring their mother out, when they do, it won't be pretty. IMO they should live with their grandparents (either set) or anyone but her and the con/shamman. It's not like she's home much, what with travelling the world shilling for a conman. I really expected to see him, ML is such a brat, I figured she'd pitch a fit and everyone would give in like they always do.
The oldest girl has a look, it's not shock like the other girls, more of a determined, arms crossed, I've seen what's before my eyes and I'm not going to pretend. (I know they're just pictures and I shouldn't read anything but she looks very grown up all of a sudden)
My heart can barely stand to see this open grief. I really wish it could have been private. In the future, no matter how old the girls are when they come up on these, they'll feel the grief in full all over again.
The Christmas gift she couldn't give him just rips your soul.
