I, personally, have never been reunited with someone who's died. It's my opinion that once you're gone, you're gone.
I *think* this would probably do it for me as well, since no one that is dead and decomposed has ever come back to life before. Having them describe the afterlife would be a great benefit in helping the believability of it.

The problem I might have though is the quote from Arthur C Clark, where he said, "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"

How do I know this entity that came down here and performed these tasks that are beyond my grasp isn't just some super advanced race that is pretending to play god?

Maybe I would just go along the lines of what the supreme court said about porn, which is I'll know it when I see it.
