To me, that is a tough one. If the person in question was not saved, well we Christians know where they end up. Paul said if our hope is not true we should be pitied more than all others. But our hope is true. All I can reccomend is that time heals all wounds, the scar will always be there, try not to pick at it too much. But how sad to believe that you will never see your loved ones, or anyone else for that matter again after we die. Thank you Jesus for bridging that gap in our stead.
