While reading the local paper tonight, I was going through the obituaries when I read about the death of a 21 year old girl. There was a picture of her, and she was absolutely beautiful. She had been diagnosed 2 years ago.
I'm not sure about how everyone reacts to things like this, but it really rocks me to the core. How do people cope with such a terrible trajedy. Her parents had to suffer for 2 years and ultimately see her to this devastating end to it all. The poor girl must have endured tremendous pain physically, as well as the pain of coping psychologically with what was coming.
I guess the question that torments me an others is, why does this kind of thing happen? Where is the logical order to it all? Why would a loving, merciful God take such a vibrant young girl in such a way?
