Grandma Blanche, my father’s mother, is not doing well and Dorian and I are home offering whatever help/support we can. Dad and mom are spending long hours at the nursing home with grandma and it seems like we are all just waiting for her to be free. She has been fighting the dementia/Alzheimer’s for over a decade and I pray that she would have a peaceful, pain free and quick departure. It feels wrong to pray for death, yet selfish to pray for life at this point. I know she is ready and seems at peace which I thank God for. I just ask that those of you who are “prayin folk” to lift Blanche up. Thank you to our wonderful family and friends who have offered encouragement and kind words in this difficult time.
