Death in the family

My Grandma passed away suddenly today with a heart attack. She was just over 80 and in great health. No one saw anything like this coming. Can I ask for some prayers? So sad right now :frowning:

I am so sorry about your dear Grandmother. I will pray for you and her. The same thing happened to my dear Mother 2 1/2 years ago. She was just over 80 & in good health. I suppose it’s never easy, whether you’re prepared or not. God Bless.

We buried my mom 2 years ago at Christmastime. It is never easy to bury a family member, but mom’s are special. You are in our prayers. If it’s any consolation, she probably prayed for a happy death…one where she would just fall asleep. Well, if she died of a heart attack, she did not suffer long. It is harder on us since it was unexpected, but time will heal the pain, and you will only remember the good times. Believe it!

You and your grandmother are both in my prayers. I’m so sorry for your loss.

God bless,


You and your family are in my prayers. Please ask your Grandma to pray for us!

I just got home from Texas where we had my grandmother’s funeral. She died last Sunday – January 7. Unlike your grandmother, mine was 87, and had been sick for awhile. Still very sad, though. I will pray for you.

Wow, prayers and my daily Mass today for the repose of your Grandma’s soul and for your family. :gopray2:

I am sorry about your Grandma Jabronie.
I do hope that I go the same way though. Quickly and full of years.

Thanks so much everyone for all of the kind words and prayers. It really helps. :o
