    Is there an untimely death?

    I don't believe that there is an untimely death.

    In theory the answer would be no. As the old adage goes:
    "You never go before (your) time."
    However we've use  to people having a certain lifespan and anyone who does not reach that particular age is often said to have met an "untimely death". This is especially true if the death was due to an accident. "acts of god" as in an earthquake/storm, or random violence.

    But may be that particular person was meant to die exactly the way he/she died. Dying in an accident or due to some natural calamities does not mean he/she died before time.

    People may believe this premise; however, one dies because IT IS TIME for him/her to leave his/her mortal coil & go on to higher or lower consciousness, depending upon how he/she lived his/her earthly life.   When it is time to die, IT IS TIME TO DIE, no ifs, ands, nor buts!

    Interesting question to ponder. Death can be untimely (too soon or sudden) for those unfinished projects left behind or grieving loved ones who carry unresolved issues. But for the deceased, death comes at its time.

      That is one way to look at death as untimely. Nice one.
