Prayers please

Don's grandmother passed away very suddenly Wednesday (clincally Thursday). So I haven't been on. Can you please pray for him and his family please. Especially grandpa.
He lost his life partner of 58 years and is not taking it well at all.
Thank you everyone.

Omigosh, middie. After having experienced a loss myself, I'm sensitive to how "grandpa" must feel. Absolutely, thoughts and prayers are sent. I'm so sorry for everyone's loss.

I'm so sorry middie. I am praying for Don and his grandpa. I can only imagine what his grandpa is going through right now. I know my dad had a terrible time after my mom died.

Oh Middie, I am terribly sorry!
What a tremendous loss.

Of course prayers go out for both Grandpa and Don.

Breaks My Heart

To hear a GRANDpa lost GRANDma, is truly heartbreaking. Living together for long time must be very hard to lose one or the other. middie, you are blessed to have GRANDparents. I never was that fortunate. I often heard of others talk about them but figured I wasn't supposed t o have any. This loss is certainly hard on your family. I would try to encourage and support him. Whatever he needs I would sure try to help.

My thoughts and prayers are for you and your family. Give your grandfather a big hug for me. He needs to know he is not alone.
