My otherwise healthy mother was killed in a catastrophic case of medical malpractice in Florida in May 2012. Due to an anesthesia-related oversight during a minor arthroscopic procedure that went unnoticed until it was too late, my family is being represented by two law firms and we are currently awaiting settlement of four simultaneous lawsuits. As a result of this tragedy, my father and I left the United States and moved back home to Israel where we had mom's remains reinterred in Jerusalem in accordance with her final wishes.
She loved me greatly, she taught every kind way of living and asociating with people, in her eyes I could only see my future, she never wanted a smile end on my lips. She is a mum I have just lost,
Am sorry about your mum. You are lucky that she you married, atleast u have a shoulder to cry onto.. Its the journey that awaits everyone (death) no matter the cause. Be strong and I wish you success in the case.
I was just wondering.. and had just posted the question on "Missing my Son or Daughter" page... what DO they do in heaven? My son was severely disabled when he was here on earth.. but mainly PHYSICALLY, with a startling wit, wonderful loving jovial personality, and GREAT strength and courage ... since his death we have had several instances of lights and music going on by themselves, and twice an object FLEW off a shelf..two different places... once a statue I had given a friend to remember him by, and another time an empty box from a pile in the cellar near where I was sorting his clothing and putting some in with his brother's clothes... they always WERE territorial... but I have no understanding Biblically of what those who have died can and can't or do or don't do as far as interacting with this world, nor what they do in Heaven.
I'm so sorry about your mom... my dad was basically euthanized at 93, although he was still living on his own, and had all his mental faculties going strong.. they talked him into being starved and dehydrated to death, and no matter what I did or said, they wouldn't listen to me, and threw me from the hospital so they could get it done... so I can understand your anger... so often I have come nearly to blows with the doctors and nurses in the hospitals... I could tell you some stories... but then you KNOW...
I would really love to know what you learned about what they DO in Heaven...
