MsJ, I don't know your religious background, but I truly believe there is a life after this one. Some here know I've had two NDE's, and an encounter with what I call an Angel. That latest encounter was less than 2 years ago. It is still vivid in my mind. I was given a choice, stay here or go on to that other side. I chose here to continue doing what I do as my mission, but that glimpse of the other side was quite beautiful.You know, I prayed and prayed and I heard God say your mother will be fine, I thought that meant she would be cured. I guess that meant she will go to a better place?
I can only hope sharing this will give you some comfort as you walk this path with your mom.
