    When I saw a picture of this nice looking young that left this world on May 28th and saw that his grandfather was Donnie Gosdin, who has been a friend of mine for years my heart sunk. I have no idea why he had to leave this world so young, The only one that can answer this is the Almighty God above. When I saw that he would have been 22 on May 30th I could only think of how Donnie and his other friends and relatives were grieving on that day. My dad’s Birthday is on May 30th and he was 101. Reading this just made me think of how some are Blessed to rejoice on the same day that our friends mourn on that same day. It seems like over the years I have run into Donnie at the funeral home more than any other place. I can not even imagine the pain that you are dealing with in loosing your grandson. Only God and time can heal this pain. You and your family are certainly in my prayers.
