Exclamation Lost Loved Ones in Hell Erased from Memory?

When I ask eternal hell believers about being happy in heaven while their lost loved ones (friends, mom, son, father, wife, brother, daughter, grand kids, co-workers *insert relation*) are being tormented for endless eons they (generally) answer "The former things are passed away - I won't even remember them".

Which begs the question, why? If it's good and right and just and holy and pure that they are there, what's the problem with remembering? It's what they really wanted (I am told), right?

Because those who are believers now will be your family in heaven, not the earthly ones. Jesus said:

Matthew 12:47
Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you."

He replied to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?"

Pointing to his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother."

So - you believe you will remember them clearly but will sort of disown them all so it won't be a big deal?

In the Word of God Revelations 21 :4 After Judgement Day -`` God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death , neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain for the former things are passed away``......... Some people believe the tears are for the lost ministries that could have taken place, and some people believe the tears are for the lost who rejected the truth and believed the lie of the adversery... what ever the tears are for it will not be easy for any one even the Lord God..........
