Re: many houses
old semperfi, we share some similarities friend. I lost my Dad last year. Found him sitting in his favorite chair, just didn't wake up. Miss him a lot but thats the way to go when it's your time. I'm sorry for your loss. The passage you speak of is John 14 .2 King James version says "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." I'm no Bible scholar but I always took it to mean these mansions were to be where we would dwell while we spend our eternity with God. Just my thoughts.
