He goes on to teach her, through Mexican culture and Day of the Dead that death doesn't have to be an end but can be something beautiful, something to be celebrated. In the end, her grandmother passes as the man disappears. It’s suggested that he was the ghost of her grandfather who passed away a long time ago.
