@HisAngel:  First of all I am sooo sorry for your loss. Cancer is unfortunately one of those things that touches the lives of so many. I have lost countless loved ones to cancer and it always hurts so much and leaves you with so many unaswered questions. 

The best thing to do is just be there for them in anyway that they need. In my family it is pretty customary to cook a ton of meals that can be easily frozen and reheated later so that they are eating and keeping healthy. Lasagna’s and casseroles work great for this. As for the little girls, just being there to answer any of the questions they have honeslty. Its hard when trying to help a child understand because, well, lets face it, kids dont really have a filter. Their questions are blunt and to the point and honestly, I think so should your answers be. Its always hard to find the right words to say, but sometimes not saying nothing at all and just being that shoulder for them to cry on is the best way that you can be supprotive.

Again I am so sorry for your loss and you and your family will be in my thoughts.

@HisAngel:  Its hard to try and be strong for them when you see those sad little faces full of hurt and confusion. I love the idea of books, that will be a great tool for them to use.
