The loss of a loved one is so hard to face, and you want to go and escape somewhere and hide! Death is something we all must go through.

It is hard when it is someone you love and know. We know, he is in a better place. No more hurt or pain shall he face.

It seems unfair, and yes, this is true, but God has called him home to rest!! And he is being well taken care of because God knows best
