Life and death

While I was sleeping soundly saturday night, life ended for my colleagues 10 year old daughter.

She has been ill for a long time - and this weekend the braintumor she has been struggling with, killed her. Besides her parents, she leaves behind a twin sister and two younger siblings - sisters as well. Along with whatever heartbroken family there might be besides that.

This is when life seems random and death meaningless.

"Why?" gives no answer. I hope the family manages to pull together and use each others warmth to move on.
