Healing After Loss (Martha Whitmore Hickman)

"My wife of 57 years was buried today beside our son, who died in 1941 as a result of a truck accident when he was hitchhiking to take a job. She has longed for him all these years and now she is with him. I know they are embraced in happiness." 
- Terry Kay

Do you think of it - who might be there, welcoming your loved one? Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, the Swiss-born psychiatrist who has done so much work on death and dying says she believes none of use dies alone - that our loved ones come to greet us, to welcome us to the other side. 

I remember, when my daughter died, thinking how she and my father, who had died a little more than a year earlier, might be rejoicing in each other. My heart was torn, and for a while I almost wanted to be with them. It was a long time ago, and now I am in no particular hurry. But someday...I think, when I am feeling confident in my faith and recalling the loved ones I have lost...someday I shall be part of that joyous reunion, too. 

It is a hope I cherish, to rejoin my loved ones.
