part of being a faithful Jew is about not questioning what happens, because we have no way of knowing what G-d's plan is. so when it looks like there's no way things are "fair" we have to realize that we're only seeing a thin slice of the master plan.

but it doesn't make it any easier when we're witness to a tragedy.

last night, a man was taken from this world. a man who lived his life as a generous individual, who loved people. a man who was not fortunate to walk the path of a religious Jew, but nevertheless lived a life of simchat hachaim. a man who worked hard to provide for his family, and the people who he knew. a man who always had a smile, and a joke ready, even when he was suffering and sick. a man who was loved by a lot of people, and will be missed by everyone who knew him.
