It is with a heavy and sad heart that I must inform all of you prayer warriors that Melissa will be ending her struggle soon.
Although my heart is broken at the thought of her leaving this earth, my heart is also rejoicing that she will be joining our Lord in heaven.
Melissa will be taken off her ventilator tomorrow at noon (Eastern Standard Time). She has fought long and hard, but her lungs are not able to overcome all that they have been through. Her oxygen levels have dipped into the 40%'s per her step father, Jerry. This is while on the vent.
The situation is sad and my heart is broken for my dear friend, Patti. Words cannot express how I feel and how helpless I feel.
However, tomorrow at noon I will rejoice that her suffering is over and that she will be home with her grandma (Patti's mom) and Our Lord.
Please say the "Angelus" for her tomorrow at noon.
After she is taken off the vent, it will only be a matter of minutes for her to return to Our Lord and leave this earth.
Keep her family in your prayers.
Her family members are:
Jerry (Step father)
Laura (step Mother)
I will keep you posted and let you know about the arrangements.
I spoke with Jerry and a priest was able to be there today. I also contacted our friend, Fr. Laird as well.
Please pray for this family!
Blessed be God forever!
Thank you for your prayers my fellow prayer warriors.
