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.
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

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.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

I agree with Cittasanto and LY; you might want to also join and ask over at our sister site: (A Mahayana Buddhist forum where Amitabha is recognized/venerated)

Welcome Goobers!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.
