I agree to keep it simple and don't tell her the gory reality of it. You can just say he was sick and he died and she won't be able to see him anymore.

I have to agree with Brittney. She is only 4 so keep it in simple terms that she can understand and don't give her more information than her 4 year old mind can process. She doesn't need nor while she truly understand the details. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter.

Tell her daddy went to be with God. Tell her that God needed him to come home. I wouldn't tell her how he died. That would be very bad.
