Looking for closure:

Some may know and some may not, but in my previous post I requested prayers for my grandma of 94 years of age who was hospitalized after a fall. For those of you who prayed for our family Thank You.

My grandma did end up passing away on Friday April 9th, at 9:45 am. It has been a hard weekend, but a beautiful one at that. My grandma is now home with the Lord, where she has been wanting to be for several years now. She had a hard life as a mother, wife, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a very hard worker.

As, the days go by I'm sure my closure of her passing will get easier, but I will still grieve as she was so loving, and supportive of me. I will also grieve for my father, for she is all he has had for the past 40 years of his life.

Grandma, you were truly loved by many, and will also be missed by many. I love you.

Thank you all for you loving support. My mom and I truly do appreciate it.

Prayers Please!

Yes, My family needs your prayers please!

My 94 year old grandmother fell and broke her arm in 3 different places on Easter Sunday. She is now at North Collier. My family faces the difficult descision: do we put her under and have the arm surgically fixed, or let it heal on its own?

With my father being an only child, this makes a tuff decison for him. He lost his father at a young age. (he was only in 7th grade) and has had his mom as his major influence his entire life. She did not re-marry, and has been an independent person all her life.

Being in a hospital bed not able to move her arm is really making it difficult on her. Not only does she have this broken arm but deminsia is very bad, and has other health issues, such as her heart which make this battle even more difficult.

I know that my grandma is a peace with God, and is just ready to go home to Him. My dad on the other hand is NOT religious and views death differently than I do or any Christian that knows that heaven is where you want to be.

Not only do I ask you for your prayers of comfort for her at this time, but also for prayers for my dad, that he may have a comfort over him to make the right decisions, and peace of comfort that she is going to be in a better place. I can only pray that he may get to know the Savior that I know during this difficult time!

Thanks in advance for your heartfelt prayers during this very difficult challenge in our lives!
