I refuse to believe that my mother, who was for all intents and purposes, one of the most loving and patient people I will ever have the pleasure of knowing in this life, is simply gone, all that wisdom, talent, the uniqueness of her life experiences that molded her into who she ultimately became -- the universe would be wasting massive amounts of awesome to just eradicate people from any level of existence.

no, she was her own unique person. her life experiences, were hers alone. just as yours, are yours alone. you can share them with others, and they can try to empathize, but when alls said and done, your experiences are unique to you. what you do with those experiences, are unique to you. how you register the data, is unique to you and how you interact with it, intellectually and emotionally, is unique to you.
every single one of you is valuable beyond measure, no matter what anyone else tries to tell you.

Life would have no purpose if there wasn't an afterlife...
when one thinks of someone who has all these talents, all this grace and beauty in life... its easy to imagine a point beyond life, viewing life as a waste without it...
Though what of the homeless man with no family, no friends... nothing to "give or offer the world"...
Was his life pointless?
