Matthew 27:61. Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the tomb.
Our children experienced death for the first time, and they had a lot of questions. Will grandpa be skin and bones? Why is he cold? Why do they sew his lips shut? What do you mean his spirit isn’t there?
Death is hard to comprehend. We adults think we have a better handle on it than children, but sometimes we don’t understand either. We’re stunned into silence.
