My 4-yr-old daughter is now aware that Daddy is no longer sick and in the hospital, but that he is an angel in heaven. Yesterday she asked me if Daddy was a butterfly. When I explained no, that he was an angel and he was in heaven, she asked me what was "heaven" and could she go see him there? So along with crying most of the night, I racked my brain with how to explain the concept of heaven to a 4-yr-old. Any suggestions?
