My uncle Don passed away 3 weeks ago this Saturday leaving behind his wife and 2 grown children. My aunt has very little money and is on disability for her back. She and her son, who lives with her struggle with addiction to pain medication. They live in Seabrook, Texas and still have no electrical power in the wake of hurricane Ike.
I ask for your prayers for the repose of the soul of Don, that Denise (his wife), Cory, and Kelli (the children) will be comforted and have peace, and that Denise and Cory will overcome their addiction especially in this time of weakness and grief. Please pray that our whole family comes together in these tough times.
Father of all mercies and God of consolation, you love us eternally and transform the shadows of death into the dawn of life. Look upon our grief; be our refuge and comfort so that our sadness and sorrow may turn into the light and peace of your presence. In dying, your Son destroyed death; in rising, he restored life. Grant that at the end of our earthly pilgrimage we may be found in his company with our brothers and sisters. There, you shall wipe away every tear. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
