Life and Death



Like many here, my thoughts have also been of Diane.There are religions that say a funeral is a celebration of life. Certainly her last few years were difficult but she was able to show her true self with the magnificent attitude she had.


None of us knows what dying is like - well there are few who have "died" and been "brought back" but they don't really remember very much, except many have mentioned a bright light. To help me accept death, I have very childish thoughts but at times like these, they help greatly. I guess my beliefs are based on Rainbow Bridge. I believe that the person does go to Heaven and they are not the sick person they were here on earth but healed, and in perfect condition. And I do believe we are reunited with our loved ones again.


I believe that for Diane, she is at peace. She has won her battle in that sense. The ones who will feel sadness are Ross and the children. However, there is a beautiful poem that was read at my mother's service. My copy of it is still packed away but it goes something like this. Our loved ones never die, for as long as we live they live in our are memories.


(Rainbow Bridge is a very popular piece with dog owners (perhaps cats also but I've always heard about it from dog people). If you have not read it, you can find it on the net. It is very beautiful.)

There is a poem ... When tommorow starts without me and I'm not here to see...angel came and called my name and took me be the hand, and said my place was ready in heaven up above...so when tommorow starts without me remember I'm right here in your heart...... I left out quite a bit of the poem but thought this might be comforting...

Hi Phil


I can understand anyone wondering about what happens when we lose a loved one to death.


I had the sad experience of losing no less than five of my family to death between 1984 and 1994.


That experience made me want to find answers to the question. So what happens to us when we die?


I now have the peace of bible based knowledge and I no longer fear nor dread death.


Here is a link to the Bible's answer to the myths about death.


Click the link and read the article if you like. I hope that it helps you as much as it did me.



Smiles :)
