What about the utter hopelessness of NOT being reunited with someone you care about who is not a believer?
Yeah, I asked my sister about this recently in an email. No response yet.
I asked my dad this same question years and years ago when I was a kid. He said in Heaven, one would just forget about the people in Hell. I asked did he mean we would forget that they ever existed, so would not have to imagine them being in Hell. He said yes. I think he was just making this up and I doubt that there is a Biblical basis for his answer.
Also, according to a Christian co-worker whom I love to tease, there is NO SEX in Heaven!!! I told him "then what's the point????"
