Last year my father-in-law committed suicide. We explained to my daughters who are now 9 and 6 that "Grandpa was just too sick to be helped anymore" and left it at that. My 9 year old is now asking questions and we are wondering how much of the story she should hear and when. She knows that grandpa did have quite a few health issues and that was a major reason that he died. Does she need to hear all the details? How have others handled the situation of suicide in a close family member?
