How to tell your kids someone close has passed away

“Is there anyone out there who’s children have had to deal with death? My children are 4 and 6 and their dad and I are at a loss as to how to explain it to them. Their grandmother passed away last night (they were really close to her) and we have no idea how to tell them in a way they will understand. If anyone has any tips on how to tell your kids someone close has passed away, please let me know!!”
