In the video below the adorable little Bridgette loses her pet goldfish Sprinkles and throughout the stages are played out as her mother helps her deal with it.

For children the five stages can play out in a day but often for adults it can take years, with some steps being repeated and not necessarily in the order prescribed.

It is a brilliant illustration of the stages of grief.
