My nephew passed away aged 24

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Hello everyone,

It been a tough week. last week my nephew passed away suddenly. Its been tragic and sad as you can imagine. He leaves a little 1 year old girl Lilly, behind and many grieving friends and family who loved him very much. I attended his funeral yesterday to say goodbye.

Its been tough though i have had some lovely friends praying us through. I thought i would ask you all to send your prayers and support to his parents and fiancee and friends who today have to walk on now that it has all died down. They have to find a way to make sense of it all and to live without him in their lives.

Just before the funeral my DD was rushed to hospital for surgery also so its been tough.

so if you havnt seen me on many threads lately, thats why.

Thankyou for your support and friendship it means the world.

I'm with Herbie43, doesn't have to end there, make an attempt to simply call and say 'was thinking of you - thought I'd call' maybe the mending of fences is complete...
You sounded so thrilled with the hugs/kisses etc. - keep them going...don't let time pass by...this perhaps was meant to be!

Lansing, KS(Zone 5b)

Prayers continue for you Laura, your DD and your family, may you enjoy a rich relationship with them in the near future.

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

thanks so much.. I will give it a go and let you know.

My DD called today, her wound is infected and she has quite some pain after eating only small amounts. she is very tired as she cant eat and has lost 7lbs in just a few days. i called the hospital and they said to go straight to the doctor and get checked out. I am so worried about her. her husband is very lay back and really procrastinates.... she is gettting sicker and sicker each day and he couldnt care less....so i called her and told her to get to the doctor. she may think i am interfering but better that than something serious!

Victoria Harbour, ON

OMG...she's having a terrible time of it..let's hope doctor can find the reason...no wonder you are beside yourself..such a worry...and yes Laura, call them up, don't even mention the past, can't do anything about that, but you sure can change with the help of the Lord YOUR future...

Rutland , MA(Zone 5b)

gosh thankyou...

its wonderful to wake up and see you all thinking of me... your such sweethearts...

DD went to the doctor and they have taken a swab of the infected area and put her on antibiotics. she came over yesterday and she looks aweful though she is putting on a brave face. we are praying that its not golden staff... thats an incurable infection that is found a lot in hospitals, like a super bug. It killed my father....
anyways we keep on..


thankyou for thinking of me, it means the world.

Rutland , MA(Zone 5b)

thats what we do here and we also pray. how have you been. glad your dd got to see a dr. keep us updated on whats going on with everyone.

your a sweetheart....
