My dad and my son are extreamly close, we just found out that my dad has a anyersym in his stomach and a hernia in his groin and due to the fact he is in the later stages of COPD they will not operate and just said we have to just spend his last day with him and make him happy and omfortable. My son is 12 and know poppy is sick but I am unsure how to help him cope with everything that will be happening now.

I am sorry but telling them God needs another angel is in itself confusing. For one its not true, and then the child is already going to be mad at God for not letting them stay with him here on earth when he feels that he needs his Poppy more than God. Dont forget you either losing your father is devastating at any age under any circumstances. You will need your son as well as he needs you. When my daughter was only 13 we all knew Granny was going to die. She would walk right to her hospital bed in her room and just talk to her like there was nothing wrong. Not that she was in denial she just wanted to make her Granny smile like she always could.
