When a child dies, is he also a child in the Kingdom of God? What about an elderly person?

1 John 3:2 indicates that, when Jesus is revealed to us, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. In my opinion, this could be applied not only to the immortal nature of our glorified bodies, but also to an unchanging age that we will be, which I think will correspond to the age of Jesus during His earthly ministry, and as He appeared following His resurrection (that is, approximately His early thirties). (I have faith that God will still make it possible under those conditions to recognize people we knew on earth, even if we did not know them at that age, or if their earthly lives ended before reaching that age.)
