Mike Wieringo passed away on Sunday. He was a great comic artist. Seriously. He is one of the greats that just make you feel so envious of. Anyway, interesting to read the reactions from those close to him. It is just so true that death knows no age, race, gender and time. Our life really is at the mercy of our Lord and God.

This doesn’t make any sense.
Mike Wieringo, one of the best friends I have ever had, died yesterday of a heart attack. He was forty-four. Let me repeat that. He was FORTY-FOUR YEARS YOUNG. He was in great shape, worked out religiously, ate sensibly…and now he’s gone, and this doesn’t make any sense. We’re supposed to be doing something at Marvel that will make FF pale by comparison. We’re supposed to be working together on our own stuff until we’re old men, too feeble to pick up our pencils…

If DEATH is a certainty, why are we so stubborn to ALWAYS think that it is within our finite estimations? We do not know when death will come as much as none of us knew the day and time of our own birth. It is just impossible.
God marks each one on His map… (Psalm 139) and He knows when the spark of life will snuff out. So take heed of the purpose of LIFE according to God rather than on your own limited, finite notions of life.
