Knowing is one, coping with death of loved ones is totally another area.
I am still learning how to cope with the death of my mum.
She left but at times, I still cant believe it bec everything is just the same except she is no longer around with us.
Am not sure if this is an apt description:
Like kids having wheee fun in Universal Studio. Had so much fun, can't bear to end the fun, even if all good things need to come to end.
When mum had 2 strokes & pneumonia, I kept begging for doc to do all they can to restore her health claiming she's always been a strong & healthy person with no vices. But those years of struggles came to an end. Only close to a full year's of grief & depression then I realised, to let her go is the best bcoz she had suffered enuf of shouldering family needs & her later illness. She's up there in her well deserved resting place.
Life with multi-faceted events & the ups/downs of experiences, when come to endtimes, we're just resistant or reluctant to let go.
Earthly life is a lot of evil & sufferings. If we can all be persuaded that afterlife is a great place to go, without tears but lots of warmth & love.
Not sure if my experience with my mum helps.
