Dear in Christ,

I just got a call from my mom in tears that my grandfather, Durward, has made a turn for the worse. He was in the hospital for heart issues which he had seemingly recovered from. His blood pressure is going down, his temperature is going down, and his kidneys are shutting down too. I will probably not be able to get to his bedside before he reposes, and although he is not Orthodox I ask for prayers for the repose of his soul please.

Christ is Risen!

Dear Friends in Christ,

Due to your prayers, my grandfather indeed has survived and improved enough to see all his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He has improved and has come out of both the critical and serious conditions and while death is not expected to be imminent anymore, no one expect him to make it through the end of the year. That being said, the almost miraculous recovery to the point the he was able to spend Pascha with his family and engage in good conversations is a relief to us all, as we all got a chance to say good-bye and it will no longer be a shock when he reposes. My grandfather and I both thank you all for your prayers.

Last week I was in Nebraska for my mother's surprise 60th party, and stopped to say a final goodbye to my maternal grandfather in the hospital. Yesterday morning he reposed and tomorrow I will start my journey back for the Wednesday funeral. I thank everyone who has prayed for my grandfather, Durward's health, and I would ask prayers for the repose of his soul in addition to prayers for safe journeys for all of my family members and I over the next week. Thank you all in advance.

May your grandfather rest in Peace.  How fortunate and blessed that you were able to visit him before the end.

How blessed Durward was to experience Pascha and the love of his family in his final days.  May his memory be eternal. Cry
