How a broken truck explained the permanency of death to a child.

This morning, on the way to school, Hannah and I were passing the spot where my truck broke down the other day.  She told me that we'll be fine today because the truck is all new, and I said yes, the truck doctor fixed it (that's what she calls my mechanic).  She agrees with me, reminding me that we went and picked it up and brought it home.  (Even though we only went and paid and got the keys, she insisted on being driven home in the minivan and I had to go back and get the…
