God chose these five people specifically to die. As Brother Juniper researches into their lives it shows how their lives were corrupt and sunful. One of them began to pick up their life and was hopeful and ready to move into the right direction; she saw the light and God took her. The other life (sorry can't remember names atm) was just a corrupt life and gradually going downhill faster and faster.
