My mother was left with two children under the age of 4 when my Dad died. I can honestly say that I do not blame God in any way. I believe God is good and so does my Mother.

I don't want to get into any debate about this but people handle these situations in different ways. Some turn to their religion some turn away from it and others might do something different altogether.

When we read something like this on the web it just brings us all down to earth with a bump and to realize that is not always as simple as looking at a monitor. There are real people out there with real life stories and situations.
It is very easy to forget this when we send of emails or reply to forums with just a click of a button.

My father died when I was 6, leaving me, my mom, and my 2 younger sisters. We never blamed God for his death. It was more a matter of the heatwave/overwork (he was a farmer) and subsequent heart attack in the hospital.

It left us very poor and reliant on family, friends, the government (Dad's social security paid money for us kids every month), and our church for all the help we could get. It's humbling to think how much of my life was funded by food stamps and care packages. Even now, when I have my own home and a decent job and a good wife who has a better job I still think the same ways I learned when I was poor. Don't waste. Can it be fixed? Can I do it myself? It actually took some thought to say when I was poor - because I can't say that I am poor anymore. Not like my sisters and mother still are. My family never recovered from the loss of my father, and I only managed to improve my situation by being in control of myself and looking to what I need (after making plenty of mistakes as a teen).
But to blame God for all of this denies my and everone else's free will, which God has given us. God didn't make my dad do physical labor in the 100+F heat. God didn't make him not take a break or keep hydrated.
