    Looking for answers ...

    I wasn't going to post this but for some reason I have a feeling you should know.
    Yesterday at 4:30 PM my sister passed away. I guess I am looking for some comfort and answers to why this had to happen. Most of you know me as the crazy happy nut on this forum yet this has taken the wind out of my sails. My only sister ...
    Life is too short for people to take eachother for granted! Don't know what else to say. The next few days or so are going to be hard. I ask that you say a little something for her and maybe write something joyfull.
    Sorry for this post.
    See you all sometime but unfortunately I have no idea when.

    Yours.

    I am so sorry to hear about your sister Mike,

    I believe "we" humans are not supposed to understand why and when these things happen. It is very sad of course, and grieving is a part of us healing over our loss. As I said in my email to you yesterday, I will be praying for you. Lots of healing going on here too.

    Now is the time to cry and grieve, then you can start to allow your heart to heal over the sadness and confusion. Try your best not to be mad at God.

    Your friend who cares for you greatly,
    Dan

    Styxx, it's very difficult to know what to say. My prayers and sympathies go out to you.

    Please don't look for answers, especially at this time. Allow others to help share in your loss - as you've done by submitting this post.

    Styxx,

    You will be in my prayers as well. As DPDAN said, there are many things that happen to us that are beyond what we can understand, all the more in our very real grief. The "why" can be even more baffling. To repeat what DPDAN said, do indeed try not to be angry at God, rather, as time progresses, if possible, look to God as a potential source of comfort.

    Please let us know how you are doing. If I can be of personal help, please feel free to send me a PM.

    Styxx:

    I too am sorry to hear about your sister. I have always had the view that there is way more to life than being here on this earth for such a short time. I believe in God and Jesus and the fact that life will not end once we depart good old earth. There is so much that we don't see, hear, and understand about life.

    You will see your sister again! I know that this does not ease your pain right now, but my prayers and thoughts are with you.

    Peace

    I very seldom write to the forum. Usually it's a complaint about something that I can't fathom, but I feel compelled to add my regrets to your loss.
    I'm familiar with that kind of loss, so my heartfelt condolences to you and you family.
