Awesome. I was shocked when talking to my friends, how few of them have thought about how to talk about death with their kids. A couple said, “I guess I’ll just tell them about Heaven” (even when the parents didn’t believe in Heaven).

I was raised with a scientific Jewish (no Heaven) explanation of death, and I’m much more at piece with it all than my atheist husband, who was raised Christian.
