Considering the afterlife

Julie had told me that she'd begun thinking about the afterlife, a concept she insisted that she didn't completely believe in but nonetheless contemplated, “just in case.”

Would she be alone? Afraid? Everyone she loved was still alive—her husband, her parents, her grandparents, her sister, her nephew and niece. Who would keep her company there?

And then she realized two things: first, that her babies from her miscarriages might be there, wherever “there” was, and second, that she was coming to believe that she would hear, in some unknowable spiritual way, the voices of those she loved.

Better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for that is the end of all men, and the living will take it to heart.

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
