My only sister passed from the covid virus last Friday, January 15,2021. She had multiple health problems on top of suffering from the virus! My heart is broken. Her children are bewildered over our quick loss! My sister fought diabetes for years and COPD that damaged her lungs. She was a devout Catholic and wanted to go home to Jesus. She had so much to offer to others in the way of spirituality. At 79, she chose to be with our mother who passed at the same age. My sister used her nursing skills to help others, but her own medical system was hard to handle. She had 4 children, but suffered the loss of miscarriages, the cancerous death of her husband, the loss of their home due to her husband's illness. She had a lot of physical pain in her life, overlaid with much emotional pain! Please pray for her that she can be near God!
