~~My Uncle passed away at 5am this morning~~

Well, another death has occurred in our family this morning. First it was my Aunt who passed away a couple of weeks ago. Now her husband, my wonderful Uncle Albert passed away at 5am this morning. I believe he was heart broken, and missing his wife and wanted to be with her. A few days after my Aunts funeral me and my dad went to see him and he had his white kitty sitting on his lap. He was talking to us, but looked so sad I didn't know what to say to him. We started talking about this years election. He said he didn't know yet who he was voting for. Now to think hes not even here. I have been so upset all day long. They were the perfect couple. The funeral is on Saturday of next week. Omgoshhh, I am so sad. This was my dads last brother he had left. My dad is 67 and I am getting really worried about him now. I can't even imagine anything happening to my daddy. All day I have been wondering, "What is this thing called life all about anyway? We are here, we suffer trying to pay bills, raise our families, find jobs, try and save relationships, go to funerals, and whatever else life wants to do to us. I know there are good days as well, but when you think about it it will drive you crazy trying to figure out reasoning in it all. I asked my daughter's daddy this question today and he said so we can all make it to heaven. Then I said, Why don't God just keep us all in heaven and then we don't have to go through all the pains of life. I guess this is just to deep a conversation to have on a blog site because no one knows these answers until we die. So we are suppose to enjoy our life's and make the best at whatever we go through. But, I was thinking about my Uncle Albert. He was such a good man and he would do anything for anyone, now hes gone. Here then gone. I know hes happy now, because he is back with the one he loves, that's why I asked why bother even coming down here when we could just do all this up in heaven and live forever and ever. I love God and I know He has good reason for our test and trials we go through down here, and that's just the way I look at anything that is thrown my way. I think to myself " Okay, this is just a test, get through it and go on to the next thing"

Well, I am going to be bed here soon, just not feeling well at all. In the past year I have lost 2 Aunts, 1 Uncle, a cousin and his wife, and a really good friend. How sad is this. I miss them all dearly. God bless everyone, and have a great night.

Sincerely, Barbara :)

I'm so sorry for your loss! Many feel that God causes these things, but from my studies of the bible I've found that if it weren't for Adam's sinning, the earth would still be filled with perfect people. God has a plan to get back what Adam lost. His son coming to earth was part of that plan. Remember how he raised Lazarus from the dead? We too can have the solid hop of seeing our loved ones alive again. It's normal to grieve, but maybe you can find some comfort by reading Ps. 34:18 and Acts 24: 14,15.

I hope you don't mind my leaving this message, I just feel so bad for you. My hubby just lost his grandmother, so I kind of know what you're going through.

I'm very sorry for your loss. My uncle died 2 weeks ago and I am very worried about his wife, my aunt. She is devastated. The other day, my mother was with her and my aunt prepared my uncle a cup of coffee out of habit. She broke down after she realized what she had done. I feel confused like you at times, but then I remember how wonderful it is to be alive. Even one day with my son, my husband, my mom, and other loved ones makes it all worth it.

You certainly have my sympathy and I'll be praying that God would comfort you and your family.
