Unhappy My young children aren't understanding

I have 4 young children. My oldest daughter is Nine, my twin boys are Five, and my youngest little girl is not even a ear old yet.
Of course i dont expect the baby to understand, let alone remember who her mother was, but my boys (and my oldest, sometimes) keep asking me why "mommy isn't home". i keep explaining that my wife has passed away (In the way that you must explain these things to young children) but they never seem to grasp the concept for too long. At first, they would say things like, "I miss mommy" or "i wish mommy would come home". and nomatter how much talking and explaining to them i do, they continue to ask me.
and the pain is still so raw for me, it's getting harder and harder to explain to them what's happened. how do i make them understand it so i dont have to explain it anymore?
