I don't know what to say, but I'll publish anyway

I really don't know what to say here. Words don't do any justice in situations like this. The world lost a gem tonight (Thursday). Canon Callender. Lower 30s. Too young. A wonderful friend and brother. One of the greatest guys I've ever met. He always lit up the room whenever he walked in. He could point any situation towards a positive direction.
Caught in mid hug. I really wish it wasn't blurry, though.
He has been taken from us in a freak incident that nobody can explain. It's times like this that we want to ask God why. Why take such a wonderful person out of our world at such a young age? Why let him leave so many friends and family behind to grieve? He had so much ahead of him in life. He was a positive influence on everyone he came into contact with.

But that is both selfish and a bit ignorant. Who do we think we are questioning God? He doesn't make bad things happen. Maybe he "allows" them to happen because that's life. That's the life we humans chose when we sinned in the Garden. We can't expect God to keep all his children safe forever. Besides, then we'd never get to Heaven which is the goal and it's so much better than this place anyway.

Sorry, I digress. I needed to hear that myself. Canon, we miss you. Again, I don't know what else to say. I lay here in bed, unable to sleep. just reading more and more about you from your friends on Facebook and just start crying all over again.
We miss you Canon, but we will try not to be selfish. You are much better off than any of us are right now. We have each other to lean on until we join you and our Lord one day.

See you later, Canon! Love you!
