How did you deal with it? Lost my brother about 4.5 months ago and I still wish I could bring him back. I don't care where in the grieving process you are, how are you dealing with the death of someone that was close to you? Anybody kind of look forward to death, knowing that they'll see their loved one again?
*Edit* Perhaps, "looking forward to" is not the correct phrase in regards to death. What I mean to say is that I am not afraid of it. I am not afraid of death in itself, but I am afraid of the manner in which I may go.Answer Question

We lost our son two years ago. He was 22 and had been terminally ill since 17. Two months before he died, his dog died suddenly and for no apparent reason. I like to think of the two of them running and playing in fields across the rainbow bridge. It is not an easy thing to deal with. For me, I mostly shove the emotions aside and try to forget about them.
We played Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue (his favorite band ... I raised him right ... lol) at his memorial and I still can't listen to it because the meaning of the song changed for me. Many of our friends said the same thing.
You just have to find your own way of getting through this difficult time. It sounds cliche, but time does make it somewhat easier to deal with. Remember the good times you had together. Write him a letter. I did that with my son. It really helped me say good-bye.
Hugs to you for your loss.

You know, whether you believe you will see your friends and family again after death doesn't matter. What matters is the here and now. A favorite quote of mine:
~Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often~
Loosing someone hurts but you still have the precious memories of times spent with them.
