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!

"I read your words and it brings me to my knees."
I keep asking God to let me go many times a day. I tell Him/Her/It that I will never relent until my prayer is answered. I ask my love to keep asking too and have…"
"Thanks Bluebird for nice comment about my Julian. He was so caring and was my rock. Being with him for 24/7 for 13 years of our retirement was bliss, I thank God for this time together.

I read your words and it brings me to my knees. I so want to join my husband. As the years are passing I feel the need more and more. I am not sure I understand totally how your OBE has given you more faith that somehow we…"
"Pamela, you are grieving for your mother. You may not be able to see it but I can. My father was horrible. I did not grieve his death. I barely gave it a second thought. You are grieving your mom, and you are grieving the way things were. The advice…"
"I lost my mother on 9-6-15 eight days before I lost my husband on 9-14-15 and I feel horrible because I am struggling with how I am grieving for my mother because we had a very strained relationship because my mother was an alcoholic all her life…"
It is impossible for us to know for absolutely sure what exactly happens when we die. Oh, how I would love her to appear before me and tell me she's here and waiting for me, but I also know that she can't do that…"
I am so glad that the folks on this forum feel the same way I do. Society is always trying to label people, if we don't agree with them they think we are weird or crazy. My sweet Husband Julian taught me to ignore what other people…"
"I fully agree with you both, Linda and Monty. My deep and abiding grief is the only response I could possibly have to my husband's death. My soulmate was torn from me, and I don't know if his wonderful soul still exists, or if I will ever…"
"Hi Avi, it would be nice to have a friend. The time gap is big but we can agree on a time to talk. Keeping busy also functions for me. Anyways, as soon as I have free time the thoughts and feelings came back and grief hits so hard. I wish you have a…"
India is 8.30 hours ahead of Argentina. We can talk at your early morning whenever you want.
Feeling of desolation still exists for me but I try to be strong and do things (work, travel, eating etc) with sincerity. "
