And we have a 2 1/2 year old daughter...and she keeps asking about him and wanting to go see him...Please someone tell me how I could explain to her on what happen? it's so sad.
And would you let you're 2 year old go to the funeral or should we have a babysitter??
Are you religious?

Our son was 4 when his great grandpa died. We did let him go to the viewing for a few minutes to say goodbye. We explained it that Papaw Jim is resting his body and is on his way to heaven. Not sure if you believe in Heaven or not but you could change that part to your beliefs. We had a babysitter for the rest of the viewing and for the funeral. I knew that I needed to be there for my husband and not distracted by our child at that moment. I honestly think it would be best to get a babysitter, but only you know what is best for your family. I am sorry for your loss.
