My son has attended three funerals in the last two years. He understands that they are dead and that they are going to be with the Lord. He does not fret or become overly worried. His words to me after I asked him how he was doing and how he felt about their deaths. He looked at me like I was asking a silly question. "Mom," he said, "I'm fine and they're great. They get to go to a much nicer place where they get to do anything they want all day long."
