I'm sorry to hear that Numberlock. I am sure that wherever she is she knows that she is loved very much and she is with people who love her.

To update my thread, my mum passed away on Saturday, I hope there's a way she can be with my dad now.

I think acorns reply about afterlife is spot on it is so far from what we can imagine

All things are possible.

Thank you for the reply, acorn. I think that the above is a nice way of thinking at it.

PS. This is typical of me, if I can find something to worry about I will! smile

I'm sorry to hear about your Mum.

We don't know what the afterlife is like, I think it is impossible to imagine. Trying to imagine it must be like trying to ask a baby in the womb to imagine what mountains are like, or asking a caterpillar what it will be like to fly. We just have no point of contact to start from. I believe we will be reunited with those who have gone before us, but if we are outside the familiar space-time of our current universe, it is impossible to imagine what that will be like. All things are possible.

If you come from a Christian background, Jesus was asked a similar question about a woman who was widowed seven times, who's wife would she be, he replied that at the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.

To give the background, my mum has dementia and has not coped well with a transfer between nursing homes. She is not eating or drinking and refusing meds.

My dad died 20+ years ago and I've always taken comfort from the fact that when my mum's time comes, they will meet again. (I'm not particularly religious but I believe in some kind of afterlife as I've also taken the comfort from the fact that my dad is still around somewhere.)

However, now I'm preparing myself mentally for my mum's death and it's praying on my mind that, as my dad had been married before, how does this reconcile itself?
