Henry: Why does Jane talk about death all the time?
Me: Janey has learned a lot in the past several months about life and death. Talking helps her sort out some of the tough stuff.
Henry: What's so tough about it? You die; you're gone.
Me: Well, but it's more complicated than that. What about the people left behind? How do they feel? What happens to us when we die? A lot of people are afraid of dying. There's a lot to think about.
He stares out the front window of the car.
Henry: Are we going to the beach, or what?
