I think Rabbi Kirshner talks about that in his book When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

God puts us down here and fate happens. Just because a person can tolerate huge emotional and family problems and whatever, will God give him more than he would, say me? It's one of those 'comforting statements' coming from people who think they're helping but in reality don't have a clue about God.
Couldn't you just hear God,"I don't want to give John another car wreck but, well, he just handles them so well and I've got a lot of car wrecks to assign today."
I think Rabbi Kirshner had a son born with the disease that ages a baby remarkably fast. What is that called? Anyway, he went from being a young naive Rabbi to someone who really understood suffering and could bring a new level of understanding to people who have been seriously cheated by life or fate.
