I was very close to him, he was like my little brother.
21 months before he passed, we lost his Dad very suddenly. My cousin actually found his Dad dead. This is the 4th death in our family in 2 and a half years, 3 of them being a terrible shock.
Why does this keep happening to us? We are a good family. It has really shaken my faith, I don't know what to believe anymore. My family are destroyed, particularly his poor mother.
Is there anything anyone can say to make me understand why he would be taken? I feel so angry with God. I just hope so much that he is with his Dad. I worry about him due to him being so young.
Can you please, please keep us in your prayers, particularly his mother and grandmother?
It's been a few weeks now since we put him to rest, and I am getting back to some sort of normality and really looking forward to Christmas, although part of it will never be the same again. I have to remain positive though and live my own life to the full, as we don't know when it could be taken away from us.
((((HUGS)))) to you, I am crying with you.
Rest assured that God understands all you are feeling and holds you in His arms while you cry. He knows you are hurting and angry.
My prayers are with you all.
I have asked the same questions when my son died, when my husband left, when other awful things happened. I have not yet found answers, just peace that came with time.
