Death is what separate us between this world and the world after life (heaven, hell, nirvana, you name it).
It will usually leave us with mixed emotions from glad to sadness.
I’ve also lost someone I loved years ago and will always be hard to face another lost, no matter how many times we’ve lost someone we loved.

Everything in this world have its life cycle.
Death is our last life cycle as human in this world and what lies afterward, not a single person in the world know what awaits.

Should death frightens us? It’s a question to be answer by each individual’s faith & beliefs.
This quote from I Corinthians 15:55-57 should answer how do I see death:

55.”Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?” 56.The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57.But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

As for facing the death of our loved ones, hope the following will give strength to anyone who just lost their loved ones.

Be strong for yourself and your family for the departed has moved on to a better place than this world.
For the departed has lived his/her part in this world including facing the deaths of families, friends, relatives before him/her and it is now our turn to face the passing of our loved one from this world to another and also to keep moving on with our life until death came upon us.
Let cry be our last expression of love for the departed.
In the end let us smile, for the departed is now smiling upon us from wherever he/she now may be.
As we move on, let the departed keep on smiling by the way we live our life to the fullest ’til the day we are united once more for eternity.


I wrote this post dedicated to my friends, family, relatives who have lost, are losing, and probably going to lose someone dear to them.
My deepest condolences and God be with you all.
