    Because it defies the natural order of things. Parents expect their children to outlive them.

    Obviously you've never lost a child or you wouldn't ask an insensitive question like that. That is a pain and horror that you never ever get over.

    A parent NEVER "gets over" the death of one of their children - no matter how old the child was when he or she died, or how old the parents were when their child died.

    Because of the horrified look of the child's face.

    They watched the child grow up and grew a relationship with them...

    I dunno, it's just an organized clump of cells.
