Loss of a Dear Family member

5 days ago on october 15th, I lost my grandmother to cancer. This week has been one of the toughest so far. I miss her so bad, I called her everyday for the past 8 years that she was sick to see how she was doing. Now I can't write her, or call her. She was a member of the Lefvbrite movement and I worried for her salvation, but luckily my family was able to get a Roman Priest to talk to her, hear her confession, and give her the last rites in the church a week before she died. I am deeply saddened by this loss, and am at a point where I don't know what to do with my life.

I did have a dream last night of her, don't know if it means anything, but in it I was traveling to Rome with my family to witness her canonization as a saint and her body was found to be incorrupt and was being transferred to a church nearby. I guess that was just my mind trying to put my nervous system to ease.

For all the Catholics that read this blog, please keep her in your prayers, her name is Anita we called her (Nini).

I'm so sorry to hear this. I've only had one of my grandparents die, and it was extremely hard for me. I will pray for you St. Michael. I don't know how hard this is for you, but always look to God. He will help you through this.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5
3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

Thanks for all your prayers!

Michael,
I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you and your grandma today. My prayer is that God's peace and comfort abide on you during this time. I know for me, when my grandma died, the whole first year of "firsts" was very difficult. So, as this year goes on, know that you are in my prayers.
