... I'm not as saddened by death anymore and see it as a truly a transition. Many of us have listened to her Explorer sessions. In truth, you see, she has already been there many, many times. She's just there with her friends to stay for a while. It's not so sad. I wish her luck on her CONTINUING journey. ... Ramon
I certainly view death much differently now than I did about 5 or 10 years ago and yet, I understand the human emotion of being sad that you will no longer encounter that IUOC here on planet Earth while you continue your physical journey.
I was myself wondering about the glum attitude. Some regrets I can see... sort of like leaving college, and everyone knows it will never be the same again and all that.
She was their family! They'll be sad when Tom dies too, as will most of us. Sad for ourselves that he's not sharing this particular experience with us anymore. On one hand I can see celebrating someone's transition and being happy for what they get to experience, but on the other hand, I miss my mom!
