Death, Tact and the Preschooler

I only wish I knew what led up to this conversation, but when Sam and his friend joey are playing quietly in another room, we leave them until someone comes out bleeding.
Sitting in the dining room, madly frosting cookies for tomorrow’s bake sale, Laura and I hear:
“My grandpa died. He died, and my Grandma Layne misses him very much, and she’s sad, and I have to go visit her and keep her company.”
“Oh.” It’s hard to convey how much wonder and appreciation Joey can put into an “oh.”
They continue with their game. Later we will discover that they have removed every cushion from the sofa and piled them up in the center of the room.
About an hour later, Sam tells Joey (as he does frequently):
“My grandpa has electric trains. In his basement. I get to run them.”
Joey shrieks “No, Sam, your grandpa died!”
“My grandpa who lives with my Grandma Jo, Joey. My Grandpa Jon. My Grandpa Jon who died lived with Grandma Layne.”
Helpfully, I call, “No, sweetie, it was your Grandpa Jack who died.”
“My Grandpa Jack. Not my Grandpa Jon. HE has trains in his basement.”
“I think that I will have to come see your Grandpa Jon.”
“Okay.”

Such is life and death in our household. My father-in-law died last September. It’s been a rough ride for Sam in parts, partly due to my probably wrong decision to take him to the funeral and the graveside, but he seems to be rolling with it now.
