When I was a child, I remember going to funerals and no one ever explaining to me what was going on. I saw a body in a casket and everyone crying...At times some would get a little more overboard with their crying...I think they felt guilty. I would stare at them with sadness.

I think it is so crucial that folks be open and honest with their children. Telling children God took the person paints the picture that God is cruel ( at least it did in my mind).Some may weigh the disadvantages and advantages and decide not to take children to funerals.....It's up to parents but the main thing to remember that they deserve the honest truth.-Ecclesiastes 9:5,6
