How do you explain death to children?

My mother (their grandmother) has been diagnosed as terminal.

It really depends on the ages of the children but it's best to just be honest and explain that she is going to heaven because Jesus needs her.

Be open and honest about everything. Allow them to experience the pain. Let them see her pain and how it is taking a toll. Explain to them that when she does die that she will no longer be in pain. She will be in a better place and she will not suffer. Let them tell her how they love her.
