A SP Friend of mine Manasa blogged about how a young cousin of her husband's lost her husband in a Car Accident.For me it was saddening News--Death of a Beloved is never easy--and when one has a Toddler barely 3 years old to bring up----even worse!!!I have often questioned The Almighty on this--people who are comatose and dependent on Life Support Systems are forced to drag on "living" because India does not allow Mercy killing and young,vigorous people just die suddenly in an instant----it is so unfair!!!My heart goes out to all the four people left behind--the widow and the daughter--because both have Financial stability but will now become emotionally bereft and the Parents--for the load of seeing a child precede one in the prime of it's life is devastating!!!When I spoke to Manasa yesterday evening the way she spoke about those four was so that it brought the loss into sharp focus for me.It was if I too knew them and I couldn't talk to her further----I had to call off.
The only thing that is a bit heartening in all this is that bringing up the child will ensure a focus in that young woman's life but my heart goes out to the parents--what a bitter pill to swallow in the Sunset years of their own lives!!!May the Almighty grant each of them the strength to cope with this devastating loss!!!
