This weekend's feature article from Twiniversity is "Handling the Death of a Loved One With Your Kids."
Here's a snippet (the full article can be read at www.Twiniversity.com free of charge): "Hands down, the roughest day of motherhood yet was the day of my father in-law’s funeral. Three inconsolable little kids in a tiny country church full of people who shared their community with Grandpa for almost 40 years. My husband could hear their sobs through the microphone that was setup to project music, but he was frantically writing his eulogy in the basement. By that time, I was out of things to say that would comfort them; the hurt was done. His death and the week had taken a toll on all of us. First, having to explain that Grandpa was really sick and then having to tell them that he was gone. Looking back I am increasingly thankful for two things that I probably take for granted: family and our children’s bond."
