There is no good time for a death in a family. And even more when death comes to someone young with so much in his future: growing old with his wife; watching his daughters grow, seeing them marry, perhaps becoming a grandparent.

Death awaits us all.

The best we can do in times of witnessing the death of others is to remind ourselves that there should be no wasted moments in our own lives. 

Rest in peace.
