I am happy for any slice of normalcy members of this family are able to carve out for themselves, and don't begrudge them one second of it. I, too, noticed the boys' smiles at the funeral, but that may have been pure nerves: can you imagine having photographers present at such an intimate moment of your life, ready to beam pictures to anywhere in the world? And I appreciated Liam Neeson's gesture of giving the press their posed moment. Among other things, it drew a line in the sand: "this is for you; what happens inside that chapel is for us."

It may be a function of what Natasha encouraged them all to be that they are able to find the strength to keep going out in the world, putting one foot in front of the other, without her.

Finally, for all those willing to pass judgment on their grief: unless you've walked a mile in their shoes, don't dare to judge.

Blessings to Liam, Micheal, and Daniel.

How wonderful for him and his family. What a tragedy they have had to endure and it good to see that they are all on the mend. I am so devasted for them anyways but great to see them out and about.

I am glad to see them out and about. It is hard to lose a love one, but she would have wanted them to go out and continue to enjoy their life.

Get real people! What is he supposed to do...stay home and mourn forever in the shadows of her memories througout the house?? He has two young sons to worry about. They need to get out. You can't stay home...you will go nuts! I am sure when he goes to bed at night alone in his bed, he misses her. :(

I have been to many funerals for family, young and old. We laughed and smiled. It is about remembering someone. Yes, you are mourning, but you also have to remember the good and funny times. You people act like he and his children do not give a crap. What do you expect...them to wear black for a year, never smile again and stay locked up in their home? ummmm....ok.

Everyone handles grief differently. Who knows what he does when he is alone, but it's good that he is able to go on living life and find simple pleasures where he can. Having lost a loved one myself recently, what choice does the surviving spouse have? You can either curl up in a ball and be angry or accept what has happened and get on with the rest of your life. Either way it doesn't change a thing. Dead is dead.

When the love of your life dies one of the best ways to move on is going to a Knicks game... after watching the KNicks everything else seems... well... pretty damn good.

Unfortunately in our American culture, there is this "need" to get on with things when one suffers a loss. I completely disagree with that. It's true that everyone grieves differently but I just think it's odd to be laughing at a basketball game right after your wife tragically dies. It's not like she had a lingering illness and everyone knew what was coming. This was a devastating loss. I think I'm more upset than they are.
