“Soul Mining”

Description from Elis Mom: Well, it's been a long, hard, disappointing week. We unexpectedly lost a friend and coworker yesterday after a "simple" surgery. He was young, bright, funny, and a joy to be with. And he was healthy. It's tragic, and makes no sense. It is a reminder to me to not take anything for granted. It also causes me to take pause, and try to determine what is REALLY important in this life, and make changes where they need be.

    My sympathies on your loss and also to this man’s family. We lost a dear friend to a sudden massive stroke within the last month so I understand how you feel. I am a Lutheran and my faith gets me through. I always think of a hymn verse that begins “What God ordains is always good..”

    Elis Mom says:

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts. This is my first visit to this pick today. I do believe that God has another purpose for my friend and his family. He may not be here physically, but he will be with me always.
