from Church Members:
the deaths of one's family members: He left me here for a reason.
What it is, I don't know. But He kept me. He lifted me through
all these deaths, through all of the heartache and the pain of
burying my father, mother, and brother in a five-year period.
And that's a hard thing to go through. But with God, anything
can happen. He can help you through anything, and I know it's
no one but Him because I have no one else. I don't have a mother
to lean on. I don't have a father to lean on. I only have God
to really talk to, and He knows my heart. It was only Him that
brought me through all of this. To see everybody gone, and you're
the only one left, and I still don't know why. -Sister T. T.,
