A friend and mentor of mine's granddaughter is in the hospital and on the verge of passing. She was born a little over a year ago and since then has had major lung problems. Back on July 9 they found one of her lungs was leaking, so they took her back into the hospital to undergo treatment. Last night, however, she took a turn for the worse and coded. If she codes again today or in the next few days they will not try to bring her back (due to the increase of suffering mixed with the inevitability of death at that point).

Please pray for a miraculous recovery, or should the unfortunate occur, that Grace shall descend upon the family.

I just received word that his granddaughter passed early this morning. Her heart endured too much trama and gave out. Please keep the family in your prayers.

I am saddened for his loss, but rejoice that she is now with Christ and free from the suffering.

May her Memory be Eternal!

May the Lord ease the pain of her loved ones, who must miss her dearly!
