I didn't know this site existed, and at my age, I might as well join. However, it's my understanding that when one dies, "you can't take it with you". Therefore, I'm not going!

Hi Jenny, and very sorry to hear about your loss. Here's a link to an article that helped me in the past. I hope it helps you, too.

A family member just passed away. This is the first time as an atheist a family member I loved has passed away. It was my mother. I am struggling with the idea that she is gone forever. I don't want to fall back into that old idea of an afterlife but I am just in shock right now and want to see her again so badly. But I'm terrified of the funeral and seeing my relatives, I've been estranged for awhile. What do I do?
