Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
Anyone with experience or seen Amitabha in particularly after the death of a love one? I am searching for an answer.

Hi and welcome to the board,
you may wish to post your question in the open Dhamma section or at Dharma Wheel the mahayana sister forum to here.
Other Buddhas are not really recognised within Theravada except for the previous Buddhas whos teachings are no longer in existence & little is mentioned about them in the texts.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
Blog - Some Suttas Translated.
"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."

This is the forum on the Dharmawheel that deals with Pure Land Buddhism. You might want to check that out!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.
Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.
His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
