As if there wasnt enough to deal with

My dear, kind, gentle uncle was stabbed to death by 6 armed men on Wednesday night. He did not deserve to die that way and infront of his children. I am completely devastated. In Durban with the family. I flew out first thing on Thursday morning to be with everyone. My mom is taking it VERY bad. Such great sadness, my heart is aching with raw pain.


Where is God in all of this. Does He even exist?

    Good grief. I can’t even imagine what your family is living through at this moment. My very deepest condolences. That’s just heartbreaking.

    Holy shmoley. Wow. I am trying to think of something to type that isn’t a Stoopid Platitude or falls into the category of Stating the Obvious. Ok, I give up: I am sooooo sorry for this terrible, traumatic loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
