Cancer is just pure evil!

I lost another dear friend today due to complications of breast cancer.   I'm not sure I can do this anymore.  In the last three months, I have lost three friends to this disease and another precious friend lost her father just last week.  Today is one of those days where I've become somewhat angry at God.  I don't get Him.  Why?
Patty leaves 4 beautiful young children and a loving husband.  I don't know what to do.  I feel like crawling into a hole and just going to sleep. 

Rest in peace, Patty.  I know I will see you again someday!  Say hello to Jesus for me.

I'm 15 and my mom is going through breast cancer right now. I can't imagine actually losing someone close to you from it. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I'm so so sorry Nance.
This has been such a heavy burden and cross for you to bear; especially as a cancer survivor yourself.
I understand your confusion; and anger. I know that when my Dad passed away, I thought, "That's it? After 64 years of marriage and her giving ALL she had in her one single's GONE and she's ALONE?"
But, I know that's not the proper perspective.
Why would a husband with four little children be left without his beloved wife? I have NO idea except to say that in CHRIST there is a reason...your friend's life was not in vain and neither is her death.
I am praying for you and hope that you will call me if you need to talk:)
Eternal rest to your friend. May perpetual light shine upon her and may she rest in peace. And may God grant every pardon and grace needed to her husband and children that they will find comfort in His presence and learn to go on without their wife/mother. So many of the Saints lost their mothers at young ages. Have you ever noticed that? It gives me pause to ponder.
My sympathy and heartfelt condolences to you my dear friend.

Oh Nancy, I know that is so hard to bear the loss of dear friends due to cancer. I'm so so sorry you are going through this and for all the families who've lost their moms. May God Bless you and comfort you during your time of suffering.
