My Best Friend Passed Away Last Week

(Tipton MO)

My mother was my best friend growing up. Her and dad divorced when I was just eight years old. I have two older brothers that seemed to find relief in their school friends but I was much to young to understand. So my mama became my best buddy. We shared a room, friends, and so much over the past 54 years. I lost her last week. I cant seem to breathe without crying. I just wish for a day with her. To hold her hand, to tell her how much I love her and miss her. I find myself wondering about Heaven. I believed in Heaven until a week ago. My heart is heavy and I want to know she is ok. Free of pain and suffering.

I feel the same
by: Vanessa

Hi Karen,
I relate so to your story. My mom just passed in December 2013 and this week it will be two months. Two, very long months. My mom was also my best friend. My parents divorced when I was 10 and it was just my mom, my brother and myself. I feel like each day takes forever, because I am so used to talking to her. We lived in neighboring states, but we spoke on the phone 2-3 times daily. I called her whenever I was bored, happy, name it. I also have been doing this "heaven" searching thing. I am not religious, but I do feel that I am spirtual. I have been reading a lot about the "other side" and what happens when you die. I'm sure my family thinks I'm nuts, but it gives me comfort. I guess I just felt compelled to write to you, because our stories seem so similar. If you feel like emailing or anything, let me know. I wish you the best.

Don't give up
by: SoSadDad

Karen, I know the pain is tremendous. But don't give up on Heaven now. If there is no Heaven, then where is your mom? And mine? If there is no Heaven, where is your hope of an everlasting reunion with her? If there is no Heaven, then what is there? God loves your mom, God loves you, and God made promises that He keeps. Don't give up!

My Best Friend Passed Away Last Week

Karen I am sorry for your loss of your mother. WE are so surrounded by death, dying, and loss of loved one's that leaves so many fractured lives. None of us ever knows when we are going to lose those closest to us. Thank God I grew up with an understanding of what happens when one dies and the hope we can have knowing and believing in a heaven. This could mean different things for different people. But I still find it comforting to know that my husband who died 20 months ago is safe with God.
According to the Bible we are created out of the dust of the ground and when we die our body goes back to the earth and turns to dust and our Spirit which is the breath of life goes back to God who gave it. So one's spirit does not die. God hold's this breath of life to put back into the body of the person who died at his second coming this is a resurrection of our loved one's who died. I do believe that according to Faith that we will meet our loved one's again according to promise. There will be a judgement day so a person has to be alive to face this day.
I can understand your confusion. This is also part of the grieving process when sometimes our thoughts can be turned upside down and cause us to wonder what we believe.
