5 comments on “Why Did My Brother Have to Die?

  1. You are one of the stongest men I know. (My husband being the first.) You have encouraged me beyond words. You are and was a great son. I’m so blessed to call you my friend. I love you James…more than you know.

  2. I do not have all the answers either. I do not believe anyone does….just know God can use it to His purpose as we help others. I know that 1 brother and 2 sisters (my siblings)have lost children, and we lost our first granddaughter. Each were nightmares I would not wish on my worst enemy. My siblings are all gone now. But I remember well the struggle they each endured. Especially my sisters and 1 BIL. It nearly destroyed them for years. 1 sister survived and came to a peace after 20 years….with much help and support from elders and God. But for a parent it is a grief that follows one to their grave. I am so pleased you found peace. We all as Christians find peace in knowing they are with God; and one day we can be together again. Yet it does not ease the loss. The missing them.
    A fathers heart stripped of his dreams for his son or daughter….the empty arms of a mother who carried and held her child so many times.
    It seems your mother struggled severely from your words. I am so very sorry! What a horrible heartache. I am happy they are now together. I know she dreamed of that day just as David must have since he mentioned it.
    I am happy your father found peace. And you have a relationship of love and respect.
    Thanks for sharing!
    God Bless!
