Someitmes we ask "Why" and then we cry...



I am writing this out of confusion and exhaustion. Last night I received a call that my Cousin Sam had passed away. I really can't describe the emotions as I ache for my family. Sam was driving from phoenix to San Diego to be with his family when his car broke down. He had no food or water and called 911 2 times and got no response. He was finally found dead due to heat exhaustion and dehydration. As hard as it is to say this and I hate when people tell me this, I do know that he is in a better place. As for his family left behind here on earth, we will cry, ache, miss him, and wonder, But we will always have memories. I have been up all night just Asking my self every question and wondering why there was no one there to help him. I just need to be strong and support this huge wonderful family that I have been blessed with. Sam was very lucky to be blessed with the same family. Sam had some rough times in his life but he was always there to make me feel accepted and he loved to ask me questions about my life and he always seemed truly interested in what I had to say! I will miss him and still always wonder, but for now I will be strong. I hope Kim, Pete, Nena and Drew know how much I love them and I am so sorry that they have to go through this. I love all of them so much and hope that time will heal this for them. RIP Samuel Snyder... we love you!

He was the DJ at my wedding if anyone remembers

Posey, I echo your sentiments. You said it well when you said that we would cry, ache, and wonder... It is so hard to understand how these things can happen. We have to have faith and support and love to the ones he's left behind. Thank you for this post.
Love,
Jami

I am so sorry Posey. Your family has been through so much and I often wonder why our Heavenly Father has us go through some things. Our prayers are with you and your family.

Oh my gosh Posey, I am so sorry! I had no idea! That is horrible. Your family has been through so much, with losing loved ones. I don't even know him but I do actually kinda remember him from the wedding and my heart aches for your family. It is SOOO hard to understand why! I drive myself crazy all the time trying to figure things out like that. You're in our thoughts and prayers. So sorry

ok, stop it. i'm totally bawling, you're very good with words! your family will be so much stronger for all of their trials. sam was such a cool guy (remember i had the biggest crush!?) and will be very missed. no doubt he made a lot of people better, just by knowing him.

I am so sorry Posey... I just hate hearing or watching my friends loose people they love... The whole thing just sucks and nothing anyone says ever does any good... Our thoughts are with you and your family...

I'm so sorry Posey. Happy birthday though. It's such a hard time to find happiness, when things like this are so fresh, but I hope that your family will find peace and comfort.
