Please pray for my family after the loss of my dad's sister, Nell. She has been suffering from an incurable cancer. The cancer was discovered several weeks ago. My sisters and I knew that this time was coming, but didn't know it would be this quick. She lived long enough to celebrate her 89th birthday. My dad spoke to Nell's husband, uncle Bob, last night. Bob knew Nell's time was quickly coming to an end. They just tried to keep her comfortable. Thankfully Bob has his daughter and her family close to him to lean on. Dad doesn't feel that he and mom will be able to make it out there for the funeral. Mom just can't travel like she once did. Dad seems to being holding it together pretty good. I think he is thankful to have those that love him close by, during this rough time. My dad is the baby out of four siblings and now he is the only living survivor. I can't imagine what he might be going through. I am the baby of five sisters and it's a breathe taken moment. Thank you.
