4 months..... itll be 4 months he's gone soon.

my mourning process is tricky. This is the first time someone has ACTUALLY died who was so close to my life and we even have awesome memories together... and that's all they are now... things that happened before and now they won't happen again.

I keep finding myself looking up and the sky, and looking for signs that he's there... but I cant hear or see him. it's very sad to look up to the night sky and not hear a voice...

abbey_rose,
I express my sincere condolences to you over your loss. I too have suffered the loss of those I have
loved and it does take its emotional toll on a person but there is something you said in your comment that was important. We would like to know where our loved ones are when they die and is it possible to see them again. There is an answer I find that satisfies those questions and its in God's word the Bible. In the book of John, chapter 11 there is the story of Jesus and his close friend Lazarus who had just died.
It's interesting that Jesus refered to Lazarus as " sleeping " in verse 11 and that Jesus was traveling there to " Awaken him ". Jesus disciples thought Lazarus was sick and resting in sleep but then Jesus told them that Lazarus had died. So Its good to think of death as a temporary sleep till the day comes when Jesus will resurrect our loved ones. In that same chapter notice that Lazarus' sister Martha even mentioned that she believed her brother would come back to life " in the resurrection in the last day " !
Yes there will come a time when we will see , talk to and hold the ones we love forever ! Jesus himself said at John chapter 5 verse 28 and 29 " Do not be amazed at this , for the hour is coming when all those in the graves will hear His voice and come out ". Jesus always spoke the truth and while this may seen like a dream now, there were 9 resurrections listed in the scriptures to give us confidence that God can conquer even death ! So I hope you will be comforted by close family and friends during this difficult time in your life and I hope that maybe these thoughts will bring you some consolation.

@abbey_rose I just watched a video called "The Wonders of Creation Reveal God's Glory". It was so awesome when it showed vivid, beautiful pictures of stars, planets and solar systems. It mentioned that when we look in the sky, we see only a portion of the many stars in our galaxy and that if we were to look at each of the total number of existing stars in a book with one star on each page, it would take about 3000 years. It also mentioned that for us to look at pictures of each star in our lifetime, we would have to turn 50 pages per second for every moment of our life. It thought that was so amazing. Now, when I look up at the sky and the stars, I am reminded of a powerful creator who made an abundance of beauty and knows about each star individually by name. (Psalm 147:4) With the power he used to create, he has the power to recreate our loved ones sleeping in death so they can live with us again on earth. So, instead of looking up in the sky at the stars to hear a voice, how wonderful it will be to look at the stars as a reminder of the promise our creator made to bring our dead loved ones back to us so we can actually talk with them, hug them and love them? Just a suggestion. When you awake in the morning, read a little to remind you how our creator has the power, will and made the promise to resurrect our dead loved back to us right here on earth.
Morning reading: Psalm 147:4; Psalm 37:29; John 5:28, 29 and Matthew 5:5. May these verses bring you comfort and strength as they have me. :)

I am sorry for your loss. I feel the same way you do. i loss my uncle a little over a month ago and I cannot get over the phase of being shocked. It's normal to have these feelings of loneliness when you lose someone so close to you.
