I wrote this social story when one of my kindergarten student's mother passed away unexpectedly.
This simple story explains that when a loved one dies they cannot come back, but assures the child he or she is still loved. It also directs the child to tell other adults when they feel sad and that it is good to think about happy memories with the deceased.
This story is editable to change wording to fit the individual needs of the child and situation.
