What if there were visiting hours in Heaven?

Everybody has lost somebody. The grieving process can sometimes last forever, depending on the situation. Some people fall in love, get married, have children, go overseas, have anniversary parties, quinceaneras, baby showers, going away parties, etc. People build memories. Connections [or chemistry as some may refer to it as] are very rare in this huge world. When people connect, that is a bond that ultimately can never be broken. So, that brings me to my question. What if there were visiting hours in Heaven? Think of somebody dear to your heart that you have lost over time; What would you do if you got to see them again, even if it was only once? What would you say? Would you tell them all about your life and how things have changed since their absence? Or would you let them tour you through their travel to Heaven and all of the wonderful things it has to offer? For example; I imagine sitting in a clean cloudy area with the sun  peaking through, sitting on a vintage wooden bench talking to my grandparents that I have lost. Asking them if there was really no such thing as pain in such a wonderful place and if they’ve missed the rest of us down in “the waiting room”. I would ask them what their favorite part of being up there was and if they are still present in our everyday lives. I would hug them and try to drink in their scents. (Have you ever walked by someone or smelled a certain scent that takes you back to another time and place? That is what I was referring to when I said drink in their scents.) Saying goodbye is hard, but maybe it isn’t really goodbye after all. Maybe it truly is see ya later.
