    Recently I have, I found out that I have 3 medical problems that are all acting up at the same time. Once it was really bad and i had to cry myself to sleep because of the fear of not waking up to seem my loved ones again.

      Everyone has to go. So need not to worry. Life is like this, we don't know even what will happen after a second. Be calm and positive. Even a darker night has a dawn. I wish you have a long and of course healthy life.

    I think everyone has these worries at times, but I try to focus more on living life to the fullest, being healthy and enjoying each day.  A friend of mine once told me to worry is to pray for what you don't want - or in other words where our thoughts go so does our ability to manifest.  That being said, I have done things to ensure that whenever I go I leave behind items that tell my boys exactly what I stood for and what I want them to learn in life.  We aren't guaranteed anything and stuff happens all the time.  My son was recently in a school bus crash and was hurt badly, but is expected to recover fully.  I think my biggest concern now is losing a child because I came so close.  As a result, I have all of us focused on just how wonderful life is and how we should enjoy it smile I stops those fears in their tracks and it aids healing for us all. We can worry about what could have happened, or what might happen in the future, but then we miss out on joy right now.

    It is hard not to think about that when we get older.  I try to comfort myself with the fact that my children are grown and in happy marriages so they would not be alone.  My husband would be devastated but our daughters would help him through it. 

    As you commented below - all we can do is pray.  God's will is perfect even if we don't always understand it at the time.

    I have all confidence that i will die one day and that I will meet my loved ones in heaven with our Lord. The purity of love and goodness and the Lord God above us, all guarantees this, and we will realize this wonderful truth one day when it is our time.

      God saw His Son Jesus and knew it was time to bring Him back to His heavenly home, as Jesus' earthly family knew that He would go to heaven and that they would each join Him.I love my family and know in my heart that I will be with them, when time.

    Before my father's death I really scared to die. But now I am waiting to meet my Papa (father) there. I know this is only possible after my death. So not a big issue now. But earlier this question has horrified me a lot.

    I believe in one thing very firmly that is why should I worry about such a thing on which I have no control. Yes, such a thought do come to my mind too but just momentarily but then I get over it. I  do get scared not about my death because I feel life always goes on without a person but sometimes in a very emotional state a thought comes to my mind that what if I am left alone. I am certain life of mine will still continue but surrounded with vacuum. My parents and some other loved ones are no more still I am existing here as a normal person but my heart knows that consciously and subconsciously they are always within me. Thus, the question is will I be able to survive the loss of some other loved ones. This thought horrifies me and makes me cry. I very often cry at the loss of my loved ones and also cry while fearing some more losses when I am alone and sentimental.

    My greatest fear is dying and not just leaving loved ones behind, I am sometimes afraid of dying and going into a netherworld with nothing. That's where faith enters the picture.

    Every one comes a time to depart from earth and to be dust.

    I believe we are born to teach our love ones how to survive and carry on with future generations down the road.

    If one day we succeed in learning the way of enlightenment, then we will no longer need to be in the cycle of re-birth. So once our future generation manage to achieve this then we all can be living in the spiritual world without being fear of death and sorrow.

    I don't believe for a moment that anyone has not thought about this ...it is human to wonder about such things.I have known children that have had these thoughts, but perhaps as we age , we choose not to speak/think about such matters, due to our own insecurities of dealing with the finality of death... Hopefully our families and loved ones will not be alone..and will have spiritual connection to see them through their loss...worse part is WE will never know the outcome...
