Asking for Prayers Please


I received some bad news today and I'm asking for Prayers for my Brother, Richard.  He's had COPD for years now and this is the 3rd time he's developed pneumonia.  After much testing, they have discovered that he has no lung tissue left and that he's also developed cancer.  He has smoked since he was about 16 years old and it's finally caught up with him.  My oldest brother called today to let me know that Hospice has been called in and that they give him days.  It breaks my heart that I cannot be with him at this time, but with DH not being able to hear, I just can't be away from the house overnight.  If anything happened to DH, I'd never forgive myself.
So please pray for an easy passing and that God wraps him in his arms gently.

Blessings, Barbara
