Those are really smart and empathetic kids for being so young! They seem to be ahead of Piaget's Stages of Cognitive Development in relation to egocentrism.
Gotta admit, they caught onto the concept fast. I was around six or seven when I finally got what death was. Started bawling - coincidentally it was in the middle of my maternal grandmother's funeral service. Halfway through the memorial I figured out why we were there and just lost it.
As cute as the kids might seem, in most situations telling someone that their love ones "has gone to a better place" is not necessarily the correct thing to tell somebody grieving. When I experienced the lost of a few of my love ones, nothing pissed me off more than someone telling me those exact words.
