After discussing our dearly departed dogs:
“Why do people not come back from heaven?”
“Because they just don’t, sweetie. People and animals don’t live forever. But the good thing is in heaven you’re healthy and happy, and you know someday you will see your loved ones again.”
“Yes, when their time on earth has passed.”
“Wait — what did you just say?”
Simply smiles in reply.
“How old are you?”
