Last night my husband and I were trying to figure out how to explain death and dying to our 3 year old, not a fun conversation. There really isn't any way to pleasantly explain to a small child that someone they know and love will no longer be around.
Without going into to much detail, our family is preparing itself for the death of a loved one. The thought of having to explain death to a child, the thought of taking away their innocence is heart breaking no matter how you think about it.
If you are someone that prays, please pray that our loved one does not suffer, and please pray that the news is as painless as possible to deliver to a small child
