But it was the very end of this article that got me thinking. The father of this family, Milton Wexler, has recently died. The article concludes:
Wexler's daughters survive him. Both chose not to have children but there is still no cure, and he persuaded them there was nothing to be gained by having the test. "If the gods want to drive you mad, first they tell you your future," he said.While THE God is perhaps very merciful in not revealing to us what our individual future might hold, in this life, giving us the grace for it one day at a time, one of the very things that fortifies us for whatever comes and provides our sure hope IS what God tells us of our ultimate future:
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
