Please Pray

It seems like I'm always requesting prayers here, but this is a biggie.

We just found out that our neighbour passed away.

He's been struggling with diabetes and he had one of his legs amputated a couple of years ago. He was been waiting for a kidney transplant and during his wait he also developed heart trouble.

When I was coming home tonight his wife was parked across our driveways (ours are connected) and while I was waiting for her to move her truck she rolled down her window to ask if we could look after their daughter. They were on their way to the hospital because J went into cardiac arrest while having dialysis.

The doorbell just rang and it was our neighbour's brother telling us the sad news. He asked us if he could park J's wheelchair in our garage.

I'm shaking right now.

His daughter is only 13 and I can't imagine what she is going through right now.

I'm going to log off and cry.

  1. Oh, JB, I'm so sorry. That has to be hard. My father passed away when I was 20 and I can't imagine losing him earlier than that.

    I pray that his family will be comforted by He who we trust. It's the only thing that got me through.

  11. He and his family will be in my prayers. He can't have been very old, with a thirteen-year-old daughter. I can't imagine how hard this will be for her.
