Death In Family
« on: April 29, 2005, 10:59:09 PM »
Hello, everyone!

I am asking that prayers be extended for the repose of my godsister, who passed on about an hour ago, as well as for her mother and my second mother, who is beside herself with grief.

Thank you. To complicate matters I will not be present for the funeral as I will have to be traveling to get back to school. Any comfort that can be afforded my family members by oil (and love) would be appreciated.

My prayers go out to you and your family, and especially to your godmother.

Prayers for all concerned. I am sorry this happened to you.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I would like to thank all of you for your prayers.

It was a difficult time, but I think Nounah is comforted by knowing that her daughter's funeral was in Bright Week. I could not be there, but my wife and kids could, and reports are that Nounah/Yiayia G______ was sad but back to her old self.

Thank you again for all your prayers, also to those who were praying but forgot to write it down (like I do)!

Chris,

Please be assured of my prayers.  My wife's Dad reposed two weeks ago.

Peace,
