I'm so very sorry to hear about your father's condition, Charlie. This is a tough one to deal with.

You know your children better than anyone. Just set the younger ones down, and calmly tell them about their grandfather's illness and what to expect. The sooner they know the better, especially since the older ones already know.

I could write paragraphs about how I first learned about my beloved grandfather's imminent death from cancer, but I'll just say I was 15, my brother was 14, and we were protected from the truth. When it got bad sooner than expected, we were blindsided and had no time to prepare.

(((hugs, Charlie)))

Grandchildren fill the space in your heart you never knew was empty.
