This is my first time here. I have a 3 year old DD.
A very good friend's Mom passed away Tuesday night after being diagnosed with cancer 2 weeks ago. She was in her 80's,living with our friend, we knew she was sick but she wouldn't see a doctor etc. My DD was very close to her, called her Nana. Whenever we'd go by our friend's house they always played together,she was the first person she'd want to go to. I think DD started sensing something wasn't right when Nana stopped coming out of her room sometimes or when she did it wasn't for long. We'd just tell DD that Nana wasn't feeling good or she was tired....none of us knew what was wrong.
Most likely we won't be bringing DD to the wake Friday but we will be going over to their house Saturday. How do I explain to DD when she asks where her Nana is? I know she's going to ask. Right now, my DD is drawing pictures and told me that this one picture is for Nana. I know this should've been my opportunity to try to explain to her but I just got teary and told her I was sure Nana would like that.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
