There’s a graveyard on the way to Burke and Maggie’s school, so we’ve talked about it a few times when we’ve gone by. I put it in terms of “That’s where people are buried when they die. The headstones help people find the person they want to visit because sometimes it’s nice to be able to go and talk – even if they can’t talk back.”
We’ve also talked about Heaven (MAN is that a hard concept!!) and what it might be like in Heaven and how we have relatives there and that’s where we’ll go when we die.
The other day as we were going by the graveyard, Maggie pipes up with her knowledge, “That’s the graveyard – it’s where people go when they die.”
After a few pondering moments, Burke asked, “Is THAT Heaven then?”
