One of the worst thing imaginable happened. Two weeks ago, my husband passed away in my arms at the age of 38. I try to explain to our daughters (2 1/2 yrs and 14 months) that Dadda was sick and we couldn't make him better, so he's in heaven. Our oldest, after seeing him at the viewing, said Dadda is sleeping in a white bed. We talk to him in the clouds everyday...tell him what we did that day and say we love him. Is there something else I could/should be doing? I don't know how much a 2 1/2 yr old can possibly grasp. She knows that when I cry it's because I miss Dadda. Can anyone give any advice or recommend a book that can help me through this nightmare?
