I understand. When my son was in third grade his classmate's mom died suddenly of a brain anyeurism on mother's day, in fifth grade my youngest daughter's best friend's father committed suicide, another daughter went to high school with some of the VA Tech kids. Death is so so damn hard. In my son's summer right before college 4 local highschoolers died together in the same car accident. I've just tell them, and mine are highschool into college, that no one not any one knows when it's time to die, that only God knows. I've just told them that when it's time to die God comes and scoops you up and takes you to heaven where ever you are. And their souls their memories stay on earth and their hearts of love and caring go to heaven and beat in heaven.
I am sorry for your sadness. it's hard. Unfortunately it doesn't get easier. God Bless.
