My 4 year old great niece has been asking questions about her deceased Grandpa (my brother-in-law.) 1. Why did Grandpa have to die? 2. Did God hate Grandpa? 3. Will she be getting another Grandpa in her life? She was told, no God did not hate Grandpa. Grandpa was so funny that God brought Grandpa up to heaven in order to tell him jokes. Grandma told her that she doesn’t know if there will be another Grandpa. Pretty heady questions from a 4 year old about life and death. Most adults do not ask questions like this and they probably should.
