I lost my only son, Billy in a construction accident and to this day I still cannot believe he is gone.  He left a 22 month-old daughter and a 4 month-old baby boy.  He absolutely loved being a dad, and he was a good one.  He had a rocky road growing up, but when his life was taking a better path and his children were born he was on top of the world.  The question that haunts me to this very minute is why did he have to be taken away from his children.  They never got to know what a great man their dad was.  I often wonder what I could have done differently that day or at any point.  I get stuck quite often, but I force myself to do all the things I just didn't want to do any more.  Why do I struggle still?  My son was 29 years old and his accident occurred n June 29, 1999.  He would have been 30 on June 30, 1999 - the very next day, so instead of celebrating his life, we were planning his funeral.  We had plans made and in an instant it all completely changed - FOREVER.....

It is a terrible thing to lose anyone that we love, but to lose a child is a pain that has no words. I am so sorry for your loss.

So many times we are so overwhelmed with grief that we begin to ask questions that have never come to our minds before. Some people stop believing in God. Some people get angry with God and wonder why he did this terrible thing to us. Many people are just left hurting and confused.

But the truth is that God had nothing to do with what has happened. Please take some time to look at the link below.


It discusses the question - Why is there so much suffering?

The bible does answer our questions and it gives us a real hope for the future. It tells us that God is not responsible for the suffering in the world, but he has promised a wonderful future for us if we just learn about him and listen to his voice.

As to those that we have lost in death - please use the following links to find out more about what the Bible really teaches.


This information gave me great comfort. I hope it can do the same for you
