Undoubtedly it is a strong blow for the family of Millie Bobby Brown. The thing is, In November 2020, his grandmother Ruth passed away from Alzheimer’s. Back then, the protagonist of stranger things assured: “There are no words that make sense right now. There is no feeling to pin down. Loss is something so complex. I go through periods where I can’t stop crying and then I laugh at all the memories and then I sit quietly and try to understand what happened”.
Thus, he remarked: “Alzheimer’s is bad. It’s cruel. Taking away someone’s ability to recall memories and then how to function as a human being. It’s so hard to sit there and watch”. And he added: “I will always be your Millie Moos. I hope you take care of me and protect me like you did when I was little. She loved you more than anyone could love. I will tell everyone about you and the lessons you taught me. I will thank you every day for the laughs and memories you gave me throughout my life so far.”.
That event meant a significant loss for Millie, since -in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic- she herself revealed that she could not say goodbye in person and that in her last days she could only communicate through video calls. This is why the death of her grandfather revived her memories once again and she sought support through social networks.
