When Christ comes and our loved ones are raptured up, will we have no memory of them. I struggle with the idea that my child won't recognize or remember me or I her.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Welcome. Could you provide a source/verse which made you say "we will we have no memory of them"? – Mawia Jul 18 '13 at 7:34
As Mawia says you're making a few assumptions here that aren't obviously supported. Could you perhaps show us where you've found these claims so that we can address them? – wax eagle Jul 18 '13 at 12:43
I am struggling with this, too. Why was this closed? Shouldn't the Bible have an answer for this? – jay_t55 Dec 18 '14 at 13:24

Jesus Christ said that he will come back in the generation of his disciples (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21). I wrote the details about it here (check my post).

How will Jesus be recognized at the time of "Second Coming"?

We have now access to the kingdom of God after we die. After we die, we will be like angels in heaven exactly like Jesus taught Saduccees in Matthew 22. I am sure you will recognize your child just like the disciples recognized Moses and Elijah in transfiguration.
