these are the most tragic
the loss, the tragedy, the emptiness of a life not fully lived.
i hope you will meet, and be friends, and join in the most joyous worship of our god together - wait for me, for one day i shall join you.
i knew you for a season only. i was your student for a while. maybe you didn't even know my name. and i grieve not because i knew and loved you, but because i know the pain of those who did.
it's not fair, to have a life cut short so abruptly. yours was a life lived to the fullest, with joy, with love, with enthusiasm, with meaning. and to end in this manner - is unbearable.
the only consolation is that we will meet again, one day, on that distant shore, together with all we have loved.
all i can do is pray for peace to those whose pain cannot be borne.
