This writing is very sad and written well. Most religions teach God 'takes' our loved ones. That is not true. Death will soon be wiped out and the innocent dead ones, raised up, all new, on earth. '...For with evil things, God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.' James 1: 13. See my poem, 'Comfort For All' about hope for our dead loved ones. Also my poem, 'Drinking While Intoxicated - DWI'. Thank you.
