EXPLAINING DEATH TO KIDS


Our Video FAQ's Help Explain Death To Kids


We Consider Explaining Death to Children a Significant Part of Our Community Commitment.

We are proud to now offer that service via this website.
Through online video, you are now able to get the advice of David Techner, Funeral Director at The Ira Kaufman Chapel and a nationally recognized expert on explaining death to kids.

The author of children's book "A CANDLE FOR GRANDPA"
and Co-Producer of Emmy Award winning documentary "GENERATION TO GENERATION", now appears in
videos produced and designed to help your entire family.

CAN I PUT SOMETHING IN THE CASKET?



HOW DOES GRANDPA GET TO HEAVEN?



WILL I DIE TOO? WILL YOU?



WHAT IF MY CHILD IS SAD?
