They lost their grandfather today and can't stop crying.
When my Nan passed away, I was 11, I remember my Mom sat on my bed with me and we just spoke about her and looked at old photos, she reminded me she's always been proud of me and loves me no matter what and wouldn't want her Princess crying because she'll always be with me. It helped me a lot because I knew my Nan wouldn't want to see me cry and make myself so upset. So that could help if you just sat with them and spoke about their Grandpa. and I do hope they sleep well and hope you're all okay. :)
Just tell them he's not really dead say he's in heaven. Whether heaven exists or not it will make them feel much more calm. When I was little and I lost someone who I was close to my mom told me I would see them again in heaven And it's like they just went on vacation to heaven lol
I know when i was young and i lost my Great Grandma and my mother had to go up to the hospital my sister and i went to my parents bed room and slept in there.and my dad just talked to us.. and if you are religious you could tell them that he will be in a better place.
Much like what Leeks said, taalk to them about him, tell them stories and reassure them that just cause he's physically gone, he will always be with them in their hearts. You're a wonderful mom, i know you'll do just great :)
Most of it will just have to run it's course it's part of it. They need to feel the pain because that's reality. All will get better and they will be fine. Just love em.
i remember when i was nine and my father past away i usually tried to do things that took my mind off of it and eventually i fell asleep after 5 days of no sleep.
There is really nothing you can do for the next week or so that will make them feel better, the only thing that helps in a case like this is time.
You might have to sleep with them. you all can talk about him and all the great things you remember about him and fall asleep together
Thanks sweetie :-)
