"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love."
Leo Buscaglia

This quote is by far one of my favourite quotes explaining how although we have lost someone from this world, they will never completely be gone. There is a part of us that is affected by each individual we meet, and even more so by those we have come to love. And every day we go on, is another day that person lives on in us.

"While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil."
John Taylor

When we leave this world, I think the majority of us believe there is something or someone waiting for us on the other side. When we are grieving, we sometimes feel as if that person is not happy or alone. But we need to remember that others have gone before him/her and he/she will not be alone and will be happy with those they have been waiting to see themselves.

"Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know that they are happy."
Author Unknown

I love to hear the thoughts of people about their belief’s of where people go when they die and what they do up in heaven. How they show us they’re okay. This one is a new one to me, but a favourite. Now every time I look up at the stars I will think of this quote and know my loved ones are letting me know they’re happy!

"As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well used brings happy death."
Leonardo Davinci

This quote makes perfect sense and would be a sense of relief to many people left behind. If you spend you’re time here on earth living and being happy, why should that change in the afterlife. This is why we shouldn’t be afraid of death, we should embrace it as its the next step in our journey.
