One less... or one more?

A member of our Bible study group is now deceased. We had actually had the study group at the hospital last week so she could participate; she seemed tired, and we knew her prognosis was very poor. But it was still a shock to have her actively participating in the group one day, and the next day pass away.

The partner and I talked about how she was one of just a few people either of us has had a relationship with that died. I don't know if that's fortunate that we have had so little of that pain, or unfortunate that we didn't have meaningful relationships with our relatives that passed away. Perhaps a little of both.
