    It seems that you cannot move, feeling lonely

    We all know that at the burial or cremation we feel a sort of detachment towards the physical things and to the world and the life as a whole. This is often referred to as knowledge of the burial ground. In almost all the cases it ceases to operate once you are away from all and may linger long if your bereavement is personal.

    I feel pity/sympathy for those left behind that will miss the prescense of the person that has died.

    I hope the beliefs I have come to accept as truth are true, and the departed is looking back at me thinking you were right, it will be alright, WE will all be alright.

    I anticipate the day when it will be my turn to discover what comes next.

    I usually try to remember all the happy times I had with the person that has passed. I try to remember what they did and what kind of impact they had in my life. Some of these memories are uplifting and allows me to find some peace in such a difficult time.

    Life is ephemeral. Nothing lasts here. Kings and beggars are one and the same in the domain of death. None bring anything into the world nor he takes even a speck of sand when he departs. None can accompany the death except God!

    (Well at least I used to say this) What the hell am I doing here?  I don't feel comfortable going to just anyones funeral just because I have known them while they were alive.  There are a few people I will indeed have to pay my respects to one last time.  I would think memories would be at the core.  Please don't take my comment as an insult if you have recently lost someone that is dear to you.  I'm just responding to your question

    I think that I probably have about 20 yrs left on this earth so I had better make the most of it !!

    But I may live to 92 like my mum in which case I have about  28 yrs left...still not long is it ?

    I picture myself in that position and how sad my family will be when I die. We all will have to travel that road so I don't well on it.
