The tradition when someone dies is to consider it a loss. The age old condolence, “Sorry for your loss” has been learned and repeated over and over. We heard it as children…we say it as adults. The phrase has merit and it has meaning. It is appropriate as tradition goes, but does it say all.
If we believe that there is life beyond this world, then, perhaps, we can say, “See you later.” Can you imagine your loved one excited and waiting to show you what cannot be seen with earthly eyes? It will bring a smile thru your tears. “See you later, Phil.”
