Prayers and good thoughts for my grandma
« on: April 29, 2012, 02:24:18 am »
After a couple of months of illness, and several days of just waiting for the end, my grandmother lost her older sister today. Great-aunt Marge was 17 years older than Grandma, and when Grandma was young she stayed quite a bit at Marge's house, so the two of them were pretty close. Since Grandpa is having knee surgery on Monday, Grandma isn't going to be able to fly out to Seattle for the funeral, and the whole thing is really hard for her. She's a conservative Christian who wouldn't appreciate any kind of magic on her behalf, but if I can let her know that my online friends are praying for her (without necessarily mentioning to whom), it would be a great comfort to her.
A heretic blast has been blown in the west,
That what is no sense must be nonsense.

Then let her know that someone cares who doesn't even know her.

I love a gramm. I don't have any left on this side myself and I am happy to see you care for yours so much.

You've got it, Stephy.  Prayers going out.

Just let her know that she is being lifted up. That knowledge alone should be of comfort to her. I'm very sorry for the loss.
