Whether they are close to you or not, losing someone in your life gives you a reality check. It impacts your life, both negatively and positively. Even when you barely spoke to the person, it’s not the same knowing they won’t be there in your presence. Despite losing that someone, their race is done. They won’t have to suffer. They won’t have to struggle in this life anymore. God has called him/her back to heaven, where we will all be re-united.
