I'm asking for prayers for my grandma today. She just lost her husband (my step-grandfather) a couple hours ago when he his heart stopped in the hospital after a surgery for colon cancer. She has been with him for 30 years and is alone and completely devastated. My mom is trying to get to her as soon as she can but if anyone here could just send up a prayer to help her find strength to cope while she is all alone until family can get there, it would mean a lot to us. I just got off the phone with her and it broke my heart to hear her so bereft. I feel so incredibly helpless and all I can do is ask for prayers for her.
Certainly, grief is the price we all pay for love.
