Recently a friend who also had ALS/MND died. Is it ok to ask God, “why didn’t you heal them”?

My name is Chris Pope. My wife Fay and I have been good friends Stuart Donaldson’s parents (Charles and Lyndall Donaldson).
I used to be their Pastor. I, myself have been recently diagnosed with MND( ALS) and am on a pretty steep slope of decline. The Donaldson’s told me about you and sent my a link to your blog. I’ve enjoyed watching what you’re said and would be interested in communicating a little with you, as we are are in the same situation and background- if that works for you.

I have had you and Lenore on my mind the past few days, so I thought I’d drop you a line to see how y’all are doing.
How are you doing? How is Lenore? How are the girls and grandkids doing?
I wanted to thank you for your last post on Fridays with Phil. I went there wondering if I missed a post. I found your last post from January 8th, which was a day after Bill’s funeral. I must have listened to it because I “liked” it, but I have no recollection of it since I’m sure I was still in a fog. I listened to it again just now, and it was like a balm to my heart. Ever since Bill went to heaven, I questioned God and felt so guilty for doing so. I don’t know if you read the blog I posted on Unshakable Hope, but I put some of what I was going through there. Thank you for your wisdom. I have been wanting answers, but realized a few months back that there is no answer…. just like you said. We just have to trust the mysteries of God when things like this happen. You said it so well in your YouTube video.
Thank you for taking the time to minister to the hurting with ALS/MND, and even to us family members left behind.
Love & prayers to you and Lenore,
