There is never a neatly-wrapped, magic wand way to make everything all better. We never know when our souls or the souls of our families and friends are required. This world has unspeakable evil in it, and yet it is overcome by the One who has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. We have the hope of the resurrection, where we will see our loved ones, God Himself will wipe away every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more.
Prayers for those who remain, that they hear the Gospel and receive mercy from their neighbors.
