Yes it gives the sense of comfort to know our deceased loved ones are in a "better" place. And I also think that heaven represents the place where God is and that is where His children will be on the right time.

Why is it that when someone passes, people are very quick to say that the deceased is "in heaven" or is "watching over you?" The scriptures state that the dead are conscious of nothing at all.  A great example of this would be Lazarus.  When he arose from the dead, he had no recollection of being deceased.  He was simply in a state of neither here nor there, a deep sleep so to speak. 

Do you think that people want to believe that their family members are in heaven to ease their own minds and to comfort them in a time of need?

Not everyone is comforted by those words whether they believe in heaven or not. The loss of a loved one is a very physical thing and those words do not always ease the pain of loss. Some do not give too hoots whether or not they are watching over them or in heaven. All they want is them to be present in the physical. With these people only time and a gradual acceptance will comfort the pain of loss.

That the dead are not conscious is debatable. To remember death might be difficult because the energy leaving the body may not recollect where it has gone when it is reattached to the physical body which is much denser and may not decode the energy it is connected to.

Its not really leaving and doesn't really go any where but I don't know how else to describe it for the moment.

I do believe that family and friends want to believe that their loved ones are in Heaven.  I believe that this comforts them knowing that someday they will see them again in Heaven.  Death is very scary and very sad for all of us.  We want to feel better and safer knowing that the person that we just lost, is in Heaven with God and we will be able to see them in a better place when the time is right.

I think it is definitely a way for us left on earth to feel comfort when a loved one passes.  And I think it is a way for us to verbalize what we may not really be able to understand until we leave our physical body.  Nobody knows exactly what happens because as far as I know - we are all still living!  My grandfather just passed about a month ago and in having conversations during his last months, we were talking about three infant babies that he and my grandmother had lost due to medical conditions.  He was asking what we thought about him "seeing them" when he passed.  I think my grandmother explained it the best.  She said - they won't be "our babies" when you pass, but rather they will be with God waiting to help you come to them.  I think it is a good way to look at it - that we don't know what it will be like when we die or what "time" even is after we leave our bodies...but for those of us that believe there is something after this life, I think it is an easy way to explain the unexplainable!

Yes, people say these things like "see you in heaven" because they want to make themselves feel better when someone dies. It's a means of comfort that they will see the deceased person again. People tend to through these words around loosely.
