For my friend
« on: January 19, 2015, 01:41:50 PM »
Hello all,

I received a call this morning from one of my best friends from high school. One of our classmates has been diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer. She went into surgery last week, but the doctors declared that the cancer is inoperable. They have not given her much time to live. Until very recently, she wasn't even aware she was ill. She is only in her early 40's. As far as I know, she is unmarried and has no children.

Please pray for her and her family. Pray especially that she receives the grace of final perseverance and the grace of a happy death.  And feel free to pass this along to any prayer circles you deem appropriate. I know she would greatly appreciate it.

In Corde Mariae, I thank you.

I am so sorry to hear that, and I will pass the prayer request on.

She will be in my prayers.

God bless

Aerlys, I am so very sorry to hear about your friend. Far too young. My thoughts are with her, her family and friends.

Your friend and her family will be in my thoughts, as will you.

That's horrible, Aerlys.  I will keep your friend and her loved ones in my thoughts.

Just an update.

After several months of brave endurance, Veronica finally passed way last week surrounded by the love and prayers of friends and family. She stayed positive until the end, and was an example to us all.

Rest in peace, Veronica. May we all be reunited one day.

So sorry for your loss. I'm glad she had the comfort of loved ones to see her through to the other side. May the Source of Light sustain you through this dark moment and all others you may be passing through right now.   :)

Very sorry to hear of Veronica's passing, Aerlys. Glad to know she was surrounded by love in her last hours, and I hope her passage was gentle. But that was not a long enough life!

I lit a candle for her in the Cathedral today, and for you too.

My heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your friend.  I just learned today of the passing of a friend, not close, but a truly lovely lady, after her fourth battle with cancer.  It's never fair, but may they both find peace and freedom.

I'm sorry for your loss.  She sounds like she was a lovely person.  May she rest in peace.
