  • Well depending on who is it would probably deem how often this is going to be talked about and how in depth but my kids did go to their great grandmothers funeral and really dont remember much of it nor her though WE remember them being with her and stuff. ANyway we told them she was older, and her heart was tired, and that it stopped, that her body would go into the grave but that her soul would go to heaven to be with Jesus.
