  1. BDE what a tragic loss

    On the same day as a young mother of 3 children niftar at 32. This is just horrific and getting worse daily. Look at the ages and the ways they were niftar. Can we call these natural and not young ages?

    Im in need of serious words of comfort. Can anyone give me an honest opinion or answer why such tragedies would just be struck out of nowhere and leave baby orphans? Other than a wake-up call for Teshuva.

    Please comfort me with your words.

    May their souls rest in peace
