Thank you! Thank you for the beautiful explanation! Now, it has so much for depth for me. I lost my mother over 1 year ago, and saying this prayer would make me feel like everything would be ok -- acknowledging that no matter what pain I may feel, G-d is good and my mother will also be ok...being even closer to her creator. Now, envisioning my saying the Kaddish as her "mouth piece" here on Earth will make it even more meaningful and strengthen my forever-bond with her and Hashem. May her memory always be for a blessing! Reply
