Death and The Patterspawn

There are two people I left out of yesterday's list of people Jim's death might affect: Meredith and Robin. That's because, as children under the age of six, they are a special case that need to be explored in depth. It's awfully difficult, you see, to explain death to someone that young. Pretty much all parents have trouble figuring out how and when to tell children that someone is gone and never coming back and Deanna is no exception. From what I've seen, she seems to want to sidestep the issue. This is probably why she limits her kid's contact with their great-grandparents. After all, Jim and Iris might pass away right in front of them at ay time and that, she thinks, could mess up their childhood. She probably thinks the reason Elly has so many problems dealing with April is that the child was exposed to the possibility of dying prematurely. It's a tricky situation that's bound to be made worse by the fact that the others would see no problem in filling the kiddies in about the Grim Reaper. They wouldn't be Pattersons if they didn't screw someone over for their own gain. The most likely target would be the person making the biggest stink over the proceedings: April. Or, to put it more precisely, "Slayer of Farley". Since the PitterPatterson's brains are as tiny as their bodies, they'd spend their lives thinking April killed Jim because she told him about the harmonica. Or because she's evil. Or something.
