How can I help my child to say goodbye

Whether a friend, family member, or even beloved pet is coming to the end of their life, it can be extremely difficult for a child to both process and cope with. It can be extremely difficult to adults too! I didn't cope too well when I lost my grandad. There are ways that you can help them to prepare for saying goodbye, if it is likely to occur in the near future, as well as to help them manage should a sudden death take something they love from them.
