Prayer Request for My Aunt

My family is holding a vigil, most of us virtually, as my aunt struggles to continue to live and stay with us. Last month, my aunt, who we call “Tata” suffered a devastating stroke and last week her heart stopped, she had to be revived.

The doctors have told us to prepare for the worst, death is imminent. As I watch my mother (her sister) and her daughters and sons (my cousins) deal with this insurmountable news, my heart aches for the funny aunt I so fondly recall.

She introduced me to delicacies of Crab and taught me how to eat them, which easily became one of my most favorite foods…

I hope (even though I know that hope is passive action) that she makes it because it would too much for all us too bear, we have lost so much already. Our hearts and souls are heavy.

Please pray for her!
