My mother passed away on Feb 21, 2008. It was unexpected and totally tragic for myself and my whole family. She died of sepsis (infection of the blood)
My children are having a hard time dealing with her being gone. I am catholic and I try to explain it to them they way I have always be told things. They just don't seem to be getting it or want to know more questions about heaven and their grandmother then I can answer or have the answers for.
How can I explain why "Mimi" left and why god took her when I'm having issues myself w/God since loosing my mom. How can I explain to them that he is good when I am so mad at him and can't get past him taking mom? Yes I know he only takes the good but my heart is aching just as much as it was a year ago when I spent every waking moment with her in her ICU bed. I've lost my best friend and mother. How can I move on?
If you are religious. They should already know about heaven. IMO

Say your soul leaves your body and goes to heaven. So grandmas soul is in heaven.
Just explain to them what you know about heaven. And leave it at that.
