Nephew obsessed with death

My little nephew who is six has become totally obsessed by death.  Every day he has questions about it.  We try and be as honest as we can in our answers but obviously without doing so in a way that would frighten him or is beyond his ability to understand but he seems to be dwelling on it a lot.  Has anyone else had any experience with this who can offer any guidance?

Hi Josie,
it would be great to heal from all this. Just got to keep trying and reminding ourselves we do deserve to love ourselves

Promise
