I Found This Comforting.

Because of the importance and urgency of the work on the Lord in the spirit world, there are times when faithful men and women are called to that work before we may think that they are ready to die. Similar to Church callings here in mortality, deaths are sometimes unexpected and come at what we think are inopportune times.

 

Elder Neal A. Maxwell gave this insightful observation of this fact. He said, “On the other side of the veil there are perhaps seventy billion people. They need the same gospel, and releases occur here to aid the Lord’s work there. Each release of a righteous individual from this life is also a call to new labors. Those who have true hope understand this. Therefore, though we miss the departed righteous individual so much here, hundreds may feel their touch there. One day, those hundreds will thank the bereaved for gracefully forgoing the extended association with choice individuals here, in order that they could help hundreds there. In God’s ecology, talent and love are never wasted….. A mortal life may need to be ‘shortened’ by twenty years as we might view—but if so, it may be done for special services to be rendered by that individual in the spirit world, services that will benefit thousands of new neighbors.” (Notwithstanding My Weakness, page 55)

Certainly, Elder Maxwell was one of those. He died before we were ready to let him go and now continues to serve and bless others on the other side of the veil. (from What's On the Other Side? by Brent L. Top、Deseret Book, 2012.)
