For my aunt...
« on: February 27, 2009, 07:14:48 PM »
Dear friends, brothers and sisters,

 My aunt Jeannie is in the hospital in critical condition.  She has been ill for a very long time now, but some major complications have come up and she's had emergency surgery and the prognosis is not good.  Please pray for her and my uncle and cousins.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

 My aunt has valiantly fought against this disease that has viciously attacked her.  After progressively worsening, and after many, many unsuccessful operations, my dear aunt has made a heart-wrenching, life-altering decision.  Her doctor informed us that once the feeding tubes have been removed, she might be with us for another three hours to a few days.  Please pray for my family as we say goodbye to a loving, kind-hearted woman and devoted mother.

 Thank you.

I'm sorry Gabriel.

May our Dear Lord have mercy on everyone involved.

May He ease her passing and grant her everlasting peace.

Dear God please assist the loving family and friends who will feel the loss of your handmaiden.

May the Lord be with you Gabriel, your aunt and all your family in this difficult time.

Lord, have mercy!

Dear brothers and sisters,

 It is with a heavy heart that I must tell you that my dear aunt Jeannie has fallen asleep in the Lord.  I wish to say that I thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers.  If you remember, please keep my uncle and cousins in your prayers as they say goodbye to their momma and wife.

 Lord, grant Jeannie eternal rest with Thy saints.  Amen.

 Have mercy upon your servants.  Amen.
