My former boss's son passed away
Many months ago I posed about my former boss's son, only 6 years old and dealing with a deadly disease. Unfortunately the news is not good and he passed away a little over 2 months ago.

If you care to read his obitiuary, it is here.
http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/publico...&fhid=8385

I am deeply saddened at the loss of a young child, but also as a parent, I cannot begin to express the anger, frustration, and unbelievable sadness I would feel if I lost my son, who is the light of my life.

I forget who said it, but to mourn the loss of child, you also mourn the loss of your own immortality, because through the life of a child, your hopes, dreams, and essence are meant to live on.

Why are you still reading this line when it is obviously my signature line?

RE: My former boss's son passed away
It's painful to meditate on death, but it's one of the scientifically proven gateways to happiness.

I have a daughter, too, and I hope I never have to live through her death. But most parents don't outlive their children, so the odds are in our favor.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

RE: My former boss's son passed away
The loss of any child is very heart wrenching. So much potential destroyed by the world is truly saddening. Why would any god allow someone to die so young? A test of faith? If so, that god is a heartless monster and deserves no respect or worship.

GirlyMan wept then. GirlyMan weeps now.

But at least I got a face and a story for my tears.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I think this one advantage of being a theist: you can blame God for all bad things... and as they believe he exists they feel (a little) better, I think.

This is why GirlyMan weeps, ... but not only just for children.

RE: My former boss's son passed away
He was a sweet boy, and any loss is too early, let alone a child. I was thinking that this proves that there is no God. According to scripture we die and suffer for sins of Adam and Eve. A God that would allow punishment on a 6 year old little boy, a boy that will not grow up to love, have his own children, see his own children grow is truly a heartless monster of a deity.

Make sure your there for them FOB. The worst you could do now is try to avoid them.

If there's something that I learned through my own tragedies then it is that there is no better comfort then people caring for people.

RE: My former boss's son passed away
He will be missed by anyone he was around and his parents must be just devastated.

T_O is right - They do need your support and strength. From the way the obit was written, they seem to be a religious family, but pain has no faith or preference, especially in the face of loss. Just be there for them and make sure they are well enough to get past this painful time. Let them know you were also effected by their sweet little boy's life.

As for God; I don't dwell on something that doesn't exist... I think only humanity can sincerely comfort humanity.
