I don't understand how a 28 year old wife and mother becomes a widow. How does a 30 year old husband, father, son, brother, friend, and teacher die so young? I know that we are blessed with our loved ones only briefly and that God calls us back when he needs us. But how is it determined when we no longer need each other more than God does? I need a stronger faith because I don't know how my friend will go on without her husband and yet she is confident in her faith. I think if it were me (please don't let it ever be me) I would just melt into the floor and be done. I can't imagine functioning in any capacity without my husband. I once heard someone say that something is only a tragedy if we fail to learn from it. So, from this terrible event, I hope to learn to have the kind of solid faith that this family has and to learn how to let the silly things go and remember the important things. God is good.
