Everyone will eventually come to this point, where our earthly lives are over.
This verse doesn’t say that he was buried, had a funeral or a service. As a beggar, his body was probably just taken to the town dump / trash burning dump.
At the point of his death, it says that angels (more than one) escorted him to paradise. His soul (spirit) was escorted to paradise. He didn’t take that journey alone.
Angels (more than one) escorted him up through the 2 heavens we talked about earlier into the 3rd heaven.
There have been many testimonies of Christians close to death seeing angels by their beds. I don’t discount them. Because it tells us that they are not alone when they go to heaven.
Try to imagine what that is like. It’s almost too fantastic to grasp.
Then he arrives not just in heaven, but along side Abraham. He was greeted when he got there.

Not in heaven, it says that Lazarus wasn’t alone and wasn’t just trying to mingle, Abraham was the one to whom he was escorted.
