When a family member dies, children react differently from adults. Preschool children usually see death as temporary and reversible - a belief reinforced by cartoon characters who “die” and “come to life” again. Children between five and nine begin to think more like adults about death, yet they still believe it will never happen to them or anyone they know.
Adding to a child’s shock and confusion at the death of a brother, sister or parent is the unavailability of other family members, who may be so shaken by grief that they are not able to cope with the normal responsibility of child care.
That's why we at Lamb Funeral Home have a special room we like to call the "Children's Corner". It is a place that family members can go with their children to help them in the grieving process. We know that the loss of a loved one affects every member of the family. We understand that children grieve much differently than adults. We understand how important it is to help children understand what has happened and more so, to comfort them in a special way. No other funeral home in the area cares so much for the family, especially the children involved.
