I just got a call from the mom of Middle Sister's "BFF." BFF's grandmother "Nonna" had a stroke a couple of years ago, and apparently she has had another one today. I was asked to pick up BFF after school and keep her at my home until one of her parents can come get her.
It's an easy enough thing to do to help a friend.
Another easy thing to do is pray. And you don't even have to know this family to pray for them: for Nonna, for BFF's mom who is accompanying Nonna in the ambulance right now, for BFF and the rest of the family, and for the medical team who will be helping Nonna in the coming days.
Please join your prayers to mine. May God's will be done.
UPDATE: I just received word that Nonna passed away about 3:00 this afternoon. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace, and may her family who grieves her be comforted.
