    Amber is my best friend. even know she is dead she will still be with me forever. i moved 12 hours away when my daughter passed away and Amber told me she thought she would never see me again… the next time i saw her she was covered in a white blanket on a cold metal slab… now i know Amber and my daughter are together forever waiting for me and our family to join. life on earth is just temporary, life in Heaven is forever. what maters most in this world is that we learn mistakes from ourselves and from others. we are put here to be able to makes mistakes and to learn from them. when we are done learning from our mistakes then there is no reason to be here anymore, if we learned what we were suppose to learn in our human forms than our spirit is free to go to the Heavens where our spirits belong.

    It’s a relief that I managed to come across it has the resources I was
    definitely hunting for. You’ve built an excellent eference point and it’s obvious you have a
    thorough comprehension of the issue. Thanks to your wealth of
    information, I’ve figured out considerably more about the topic and will be coming back for more.
