I have been told by my LDS bishop not to fear losing family members forever. I know that the family is very important to Heavenly Father and his Son, but how important is it really?
Will we get to visit our families in heaven if we are separated into different kingdoms, such as the Celestial, Terrestrial, and Telestial kingdoms? Will only people from the Celestial get to visit others, or could family members in the Telestial visit someone in the Celestial?
I have always had the fear of losing family because we won't be able to visit each other in heaven. I have also had the fear that I might be the person to be in one of the lower kingdoms.
I would like an answer based on LDS traditions and beliefs.
I would also like to consider this question as to how could I answer it based on LDS beliefs if someone else asked me about it.
