I can't necessarily cite a firm scriptural reference for my belief concerning this issue, but (in my opinion) the eternal state of the redeemed (regardless of their individual ages at the times of their deaths) will be that of a person "in the prime of life" (such as Adam was when God created him), which would involve making those who died in old age appear younger, and those who died as young people -- or even as infants -- appear as mature adults). However, God will also allow or enable the redeemed to recognize who each of those individuals are, even if they appear differently in eternity from the way that their fellow redeemed knew or remembered them in this life.

(In my opinion, any statements of Jesus connecting eternal life with children were referring to the person's spiritual state or innocence, rather than to the individual's physical appearance.)
