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!

"Morgan & Joe,
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You put into words the horror I go through everyday. Going on year 7 without my Husband Julian. He was my whole life and I want to be with him but I can't. If I didn't believe in God I…"
"Joe, 49 years is a long time. Long enough to embed yourself in each other and there is nothing that will soothe the tearing apart of that union. I knew my husband for 55 (since 2nd grade) and we were together for 35. Long…"
"Morgan, Monday will be a very tough day for both of us. It's one year for me which seems like one long day, and six for you, which scares the hell out of me thinking about how long do I have to be here before I go to her. It seems like one long…"
"Lets be honest. Death sucks. As I read the posts on here and I see how we struggle when we lose someone to death it boggles the mind how any of us keep moving. I keep saying to myself there is something I can do to make myself feel better and it…"

"I agree with all of that. I didn't expect a reward. My mom was reward enough, but I am not the same person that I once was. And I thought that some kind of balance would occur. I can't explain that really. It's been defeating. As soon…"
"After my husband’s death, and now after losing my mother, I also found myself somehow imagining that, not so much that something good would happen, more that some kind of reward would come to me, something to balance off the pain and…"
"There's something that has been on my mind lately and this is the best place to mention it. As much as I feared and dreaded my mom's death, I sort of felt like something good would happen, maybe not right away, but eventually. Like Karma…"
"I know how you feel. I lost my mom Jan 6, 2019 and it is so raw and all I do is cry. I was in the room when she passed and had been all day. My regret is I wasn't holding her hand when she took her last breath. She had dementia and I saw her 3…"
I am not a doctor but I am a student of the Bible. It seems that you are suffering from anxiety over your past. Humans including ourselves seem to filter the good things we have done and focus on the "bad". But God is the opposite.…"
