Yes, caroline, we do die; however, that was not part of our Heavenly Father original plan for us to die. We do die as you said because of Adam and Eve; however, we do not long to die as we want to live and not deal with death.

Diamond when we are conceived we are given a number of days to live. No where in the bible does it state that our purpose was to live a pain free life. When Eve ate of the fruit of knowledge we loss the right to live a pain free life that is why when you have a child and you are in labor there is pain because of Eve.

Hi Glaretha, I agree with your statement and it is a reality. There is no final closure with death. We were not created to grow old and just die. The purpose was for us to live a life free of pain and suffering. Death goes against the original purpose for mankind. That is why it is so hard to accept:; it goes against the original purpose for mankind. Genesis 1:28.

I lost my mom January 2011 and my dad 2012. My heart is aching now just like it happened yesterday. Sometimes, I am okay and like a whirlwind, my thoughts go to them, especially on holidays. It gets better, but, you never get over the loss.

How I miss my parents and it is 2018 and the freshness of the pain is still here. I trust and believe in the promise given at Revelation 21:3,4

Lost my dad just 1 month ago.  Having a difficult time dealing with it.

This day - I am missing my parents so much!!   There is a hole in my heart yearning to just hear their voice.  How I yearn for the day when I will be able to see them again.

I'm so sorry Diamond. When I was about 12, I'd get angry at my Grandma and she'd tell me, "You'll be sorry when I'm gone". How true those words were, as my Mom and dad were divorced and my Grandma Billie was my Mother figure since I was 6 or 7. I thought she'd be here until I was about 30 but she left on new Years Day of '75, when I was only 17!  I know she's with me by the numbers on my digital clock. I never noticed until about 10 yrs ago. She's been gone over 40 yrs.  The numbers vary, sometimes in order (1234,4321.  555) It's like, "look at the clock" in my head and I know it's Grandma Billie!! It warms me. Grandma is love x 2!.

Melinda, I know it is so hard ....I know no words can relieve the pain of not having our loved ones with us.  I spend moments sometimes just looking out and wondering how my life would be if my parents were still here.....I will kiss them a little longer and hold their hands a little tighter...never wanting them to go...i miss that kiss on the cheek my Mom would always give me and that big smile my Dad will throw my I miss them - so much!!
