The Lord does work in mysterious ways. Ours is not to know exactly why he takes people early in their lives. I choose to believe that God needs assistants in some ways and calls the ones that can help the most. Rest assured that he is in the place where he is comfortable, pain free and where we all hope to be when our time comes. May God bless.
My deepest condolences to your family….I’m so sorry for your loss.
