My dad died on April 20th at the age of 96yrs old. He had been ill for many years so when he finanlly died I was surprised that I was relieved that he had finallly died and nolonge suffering.
I decided to go for grief group counseling at my church. After the session was over I felt I really didn’t need counseling.I felt okay and still do.
There was an old man who had lost his wife of 68yrs. and I felt so sorry for him and his adult son who was also grieving the loss of their loved one.
We were given an hand-out that had a lot of good things to help us in our grief.
BUT…there was something in the booklet that I didn’t agree with and that is that we will never see our loved ones again. That is true but I believe that we can still talk, see, smell, sense, and that they are in the spirit world waiting for us when it is our time to die.
There are some religions that believe that once a loved one is dead they are gone forever. I believe the opposite.
It comforts me to know that I will see my loved one again in spirit when my time comes to die. I have had experiences where I could smell a loved one’s perfume, I could sense them at times being around me, and I do talk with them at times knowing I will not get a response. Some people have seen their loved ones after they passed away.
What experiences have you had?
