A day to remember part 2

This storyboard does not have a description.
Marco went to bed that night hoping his abuelo was there. Hoping he could tell him that he was alright. That he might not be there yet, but he would be… someday. He called out for his abuelo, but just like the night before he heard nothing.
It wasn’t until he helped his mother move out of his childhood home that the stories he tried so hard to forget would come back to him. Tried so hard to forget because it reminded him of his abuelo.
She took him to his abuelo’s grave (something she found out from his mother). He was shocked, why would she brought him here. But as soon as he turned around he saw why. She brought candles, and a tin of cookies. His mom even gave her a picture of his abuelo.
Except, this time it was different. He didn’t smile and shake his head accepting it. He didn’t accept it, he couldn’t accept it, no, he wouldn’t accept it. He needed his abuelo, why couldn’t he have been there with him. Why did he have to go?
The next day...
The admiration he felt, then the feelings of hopelessness that followed, the feeling of not being able to do anything, but watch the building come crashing down.
Maria and Marco spent the night talking, eating, and dancing. And Marco did something that surprised even himself; he talked about his abuelo, the good old days, about life in Mexico.
Over the next couple months, he and Maria have become close friends. Talked, beyond their Elevator Chats®. One day she asked him to meet her later that night. He grumbled, but after seeing the hopeful look on her face, he complied.
He saw the girl in the elevator again. He looked at her, then reached into his bag and pulled out a tin of cookies. “Here” he said, “My abuelo always made these for me when I was feeling sad.”
The girl reached her hand over tentively and once deeming it was safe, smiled and took the tin saying, “Thanks. I’m Maria by the way.” The two started talking and once she was gone, Marco smiled to himself.
