Death is the end of life. It is when the heart stops beating the brain stops thinking, and the body can no longer see, hear, smell, touch, taste, or breath. Grief is the process of separating from someone or something important to you, and yet holding on to some connection. Grief or mourning can bring intense feelings and difficult emotions. Having a conversation with children about death and dying may be difficult for parents and caregivers.
