My daughter was 20 years old when she died. She laid down on her bed after getting up in the morning to go to the bathroom and then she wanted to sleep a bit more before going to work. She then died. Every doctor, medical examiner, geneticist, pathologist, and forensic specialist say that there was nothing wrong with her. They say it was a natural death. There is NOTHING NATURAL ABOUT A 20 YEAR DYING IN HER SLEEP.

I lost a 2 year old brother in a similar way. My mom was praying/begging God not to take him, but she saw a vision of him as a man in deep sin, eventually dying and going to ***l... so my mom finally said let it be done according to Your will. Who are we to question the will of God?

I also agree with the other poster, who declared it to be the will of God. Most likely she had something so rare or misunderstood that the pathologist was unable to detect it, even if he was very thorough. It can and does happen. No one is perfect-no one. And the medical profession is also not perfect. Nor is life. But God is. If you don't, unfortunately, believe in God or his sovereignty, then you at least know life isn't perfect. As hard as it is, we sometimes have to just accept a thing and move on with our lives, as very hard as that is. It is the only way we, the survivors, can survive. We are not being unfaithful to the one we loved so dear if we move on with our lives. It is the way OF life. Life and death are all a part of our experience, as difficult as they both can be. I can't believe your daughter would not want you to live life to the fullest. She would not want this to be a double tragedy. I wish you well, my friend.

My loss was my younger brother, who died at the age of 54, with no diagnosis. One day, he was a fairly healthy 54-year-old man...he went to work, he seemed fine, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. The next day, he dialed 911 after experiencing difficulty breathing (something which had never happened to him before). Minutes later, he reached the Emergency Room, via ambulance, and went immediately into respiratory arrest. He was intubated, and went into a coma. 7 weeks, 3 hospitals, and hundreds of expert physicians later, my kid brother died, with no diagnosis. He had the best of care, the best hospitals, the best doctors...no stone was left unturned.Yet, he was gone, and we did not know why. Nearly 2 years later, we know no more. We never will. So, on that level, I understand...and my heart breaks for you. I am truly sorry for your loss, and your heartache.
