Does our loved one in Heaven miss those of us he/she has left behind?

    Does our loved one in Heaven miss those of us he/she has left behind?

    We on earth are most often devastated when someone we dearly love dies...even if we believe he/she is in Heaven.  I wonder if the person in Heaven is sad and misses us also?  Even though they are supposed to be very happy.  If we miss he/she, don't they also miss us?

    The answer to this question is almost impossible to believe for those without faith; however, I think that the whole purpose of heaven is to live in eternal happiness: to be reunited with the ones we love, live eternally without pain, fear, and sadness. I think the reason why we miss those that we lose is because we have no way of seeing them, contacting them, and asking whether or not if they are okay. Ultimately, I think that those in heaven can see us, watch over us, and that is why they do not miss us. They know one day we will be able to reunite once again.

    I wonder that...there is not supposed to be tears in heaven.  I suppose that being in the direct presence of God would be overwhelming, and that knowing they'd be waiting for you would give them something to look forward to.

    I don't believe they do and I don't think they know anything going on with us. We naturally think things like you ask but there is nothing I have ever read to make me think that and just knowing my loved ones are finally at peace makes me happy and I will see them when I get there; I do believe that.

    Hi, Lea,
    Wanted to let you know I wrote quite an extensive answer to your question.
    I even wrote a poem that was included.

    The prompt below has a "preview answer".  I decided to see how it would appear on this page and hit the preview answer.  I was satisfied with the
    way it appeared and looked for the "submit answer", which could not be found.  (No the green submit answer was nowhere to be found.)

    Since it was a rather lengthy answer, I thought maybe the HP gods had to approve my answer.  After some time, I left this site.

    My answer is nowhere to be found.
    So, for anyone answering this question, do not "preview answer" or it will
    leave, never to be seen again.

    I've had my say.

    My answer to your question is, "No".
    DJ.

    No sorrow, no sadness no worries, just there worshiping GOD, singing beside the Angels, no and I'm so glad, otherwise Heaven wouldn't be any happier than here.

    I wonder the same thing.  There's supposed to be only happiness in Heaven, but if I were there right now, I'd miss my parents and feel bad that they'd be grieving.  Who knows?
