What about the utter hopelessness of NOT being reunited with someone you care about who is not a believer?
My BFF's hubby lost his 12 year battle w/ cancer on February 25. During the last week of his life he asked for a priest to be brought in twice. He wanted reassurance that he was going to heaven even though he was a lapsed, divorced, remarried, non-practicing catholic. Huh? Silly me, I didn't even know my BFF and her hubby were catholics of any kind! But if having a priest tell Mr. Jack that he was going to heaven gave him some peace and made him less fearful then great.
It's all fun & games until someone gets a paper cut.
