Dear Friends,

My grandfather, Gordon, has now begun the process of dying. The Hospice staff who are caring for him believe that it will be a matter of days. He is now no longer having conversations, and sleeps all day and, when awake, he simply stares glassy eyed.

My father and I prayed a Paraclesis service at his bedside not too long ago. Please remember him in your prayers.

In ICXC,

Fr. Deacon Daniel

"In dying we are born to eternal life!"

I add my prayers for your grandfather!

Thank you all. His hospice care nurse confirmed that we are looking at 2-3 days at the most now.

God bless,
