I don't normally read the advanced lessons but this topic caught my eye. Very moving. Like Mark it reminds me of when my son left home to study. In a strange way, it was a nice contrast to the frivolity of the 'Fast Cars' lesson I just read in Intermediate. 

I could not follow the lesson but what would be the location of this scene? I guess you don't have cemetries in big cities? Where do people go to remember their lost loved ones?

My conclusion is to agree with you that in the perfect world 3 levels of intermediate lesson would be appropraite to smooth the transition between lessons
