With the exception of my 3 children,I've lost all my family members.I have great compassion for anyone who has lost a loved one through death or divorce.So..If you need to speak to someone who's been there and done that,please..doe't hesitate to e-mail me,we can chat.:)
I have read a little about your losses from your profile, but I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing a little more of your story with me. I am part of a research team at Saint Louis University that is looking at end of life decision making and family communication. If you are interested in taking part in an interview, please let me know.
Thanks Bob for accepting my friend request. I'm not quite used to this website, so I wasn't sure how to respond just to one person. However, I really do appreciate your support. I think that's great that you have three children, although I'm sorry to hear you've lost all the rest of your family. I sort of consider my friends family now because I don't have much family either. I'm having a tough day today, but thank-you for the information you sent to me about the Afterlife. Now that my mom is gone, it don't fear death as much as I did before. I have as many loved ones in heaven as I do here on earth. Anyway, I hope you're doing well and thanks again!
thanks for the information and I will read a book by Zammitt. I've never been held by dogma and so will read with an open mind and hopeful heart. thanks for the information. Right now, I have no fear of death because I am so depressed but, someday, if/when life looks better, I wll need spiritual counseling for myself, right now I just need to read about where my mom could be.
Do you think everyone goes to the same place when they die? Right now, I would be happy to believe there is a place people go when their bodies quit living. My faith has been lost. Thanks for your input.
Thanks for sharing your experience with me. Was your 8 yr old living with you at the time of your nde? Before this experience with your mom, were you skeptical of afterlife stories? I'm just a detail person and am really interested in your experience. I sure wish it would happen to me!

Hi, everyone,I have been going to a grief group since I felt I needed some direction to "get a life".The leader is a great guy and has some wisdom that for the moment I consider. He told us that it is our choice of how we spend the rest of our lives without our loves. We can either look forward or backward. Well, it all sounds good until I get home to an empty house, an empty life, no friends I really like, a family who thinks I am doing "better", and a husband who is gone. All the things…See More
