First Death

Denise Duhamel


Nick (5) thinks it's awesome she's in heaven
because it's really high up. He suggests
we all take a helicopter to visit. Ben (6)
says God is waiting at a desk like the one
in a hotel and is sure He'll give her a room
with pillows galore and a coffee maker. Max (3)
says death is just like Target. Don't cry. She went
shopping and will be back in a minute.
