He was diagnosed with cancer about 5 or 6 weeks ago. Had been home for about a week. He has learning difficulties and wasn't really aware of his illness but he really suffered. It was a gruelling few weeks. It's also grandads birthday. He's lost his son on his birthday. It wasn't really expected. I can't tell the kids today as they're all excited to go trick or treating. Is it cruel if I wait till tomorrow? They've never dealt with death before. My child has high functioning autism and will associate Halloween with dying. That's the way his mind works

I’m so sorry. Your poor grandad too.
Take care of yourself flowers

It's not cruel to wait until tomorrow (today!). You're looking out for your kids. I'm sorry flowers
