I need your help on a question that I have been pondering for a few days.
We received a phone call Tuesday afternoon that Dh's grandfather passed away. When I told the kids they were understandably upset. I was presented with an unique circumstance. I never had to deal with death before the age of 13. My kids are 7-11. Two of my children are getting concerned about their own grandparents. See we(dh & I) have had 3 grandparents pass away in the past 6 weeks. So the kids are a little worried.
I explained that their grandparents were much younger than ours. That we were 25 years older that they are. But I wonder if I should explain something further. I know that there is not a perfect answer, but I would like to know what you think. Have you had to deal with this? If so how did you handle it? We will be going to the funeral next week. It will be a full military funeral. What should I do to prepare the kids for it?
