For years I have often wondered how believers cope with the death of a loved one who wasn't saved or might not have been saved. The thought of NEVER seeing them again as well as them spending an ETERNITY suffering in Hell was incomprehensible to me. 2 weeks ago my Father died suddenly. Coping with his death was difficult but God and prayers have pulled me thru this difficult time. I've come to grips with every part of his passing except for 1 lingering doubt-----that he might not be in Heaven. I'm sure it is the work of Satan, but my previous wonders have now come to fruition. The doubt of "maybe" never seeing him again or that he might spend an eternity in Hell is something I can't get past:BangHead: . When my Mother passed away my saving thought was whether it was 1 year or 30 years---I would see her again someday. Not having this same assurance with my Father's passing has been tearing me apart and I can't find peace. My question is how can I and others find peace in situations where a loved one dies who might not be in Heaven?
