In brief: Yes and no

Any kid over 2 has some concept of death or dying (dead bug).
It is often a comfort to those leaving this world to say goodbye to the little ones.As long as you can assign someone not too close to the grief to manage the kid, the visit can accomplish a great deal for both. Those emotionally exhausted by the process cannot assist the kid with questions in a consistent way.
