Default need a few Prayers

My Sister, Stella, who lives in St Augustine needs a bunch of Prayers. She is very ill and cannot eat. She is loosing weight very rapidly. The pronosious is that she has very little time to be with us. She will be 100 in May.

Helen and I will be driving to St Augustine tomorrow, March 6th to be with her.

Helen and I have just returned from our visit with my Sister Stella. We spent about an hour with her. She is ready to go to that wonderful place up there. She is very frail and and has not taken any food since Monday. She wants to go ASAP. We said GOODBYE and told her we will meet again. Her living will has been activated. She will be 100 in May.

It was no need for us to remain so we returned home and will be waiting for the next call.

Thanks for the all the Prayers and good wishes. They all help so much.

Like Trip, said, I pray that Stella will pass gently from this life. I'm glad that you got to visit and say those final words of love. It is difficult though, to walk away. You and your family are in my prayers.

I pray for Stella's wish to be granted. Glad you got to say your goodbyes, which I am sure had to be hard for you. May God grant you and Helen peace in knowing she will be in a better place.
Hugs to you both at this time of sorrow.
