In India there are still living examples of Christlike people. People performing miracles daily and teaching about how we can become like Jesus. These individuals talk about dying in a way that reassures us of our own eternality. Some live hundreds of years still. When they decide to leave there body they call it "kicking the frame". I believe when we "kick the frame", our lack of knowledge in the afterlife does not affect our continuance of being eternal. My blessings to all who are feeling and experienceing loss. You will not be separated long and she is grateful for your memories of happiness.
