Prayers needed

Prayers needed Can't Post

Okay fellow Ringers, I need a little help here. My Grandma who has been with me all my life and who taught me to read and cook,embroidery and pretty much everything else I love to do, has been in the hospital and now the nursing home since Monday and they say she had a major stroke.
She has listened to all my million hour long conversations about LotR and has been there for me in every aspect of my life.
If you can pray for her and lend her your strength it would mean so much to me and my family. Heart
Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart and May the Grace of the Valar protect you and God Bless!
Namarie, RangerLady23

I hope things turn out for the best and I wish you well in the future. I'm sorry you are going through this.

Prayers for you, RangerLady. [In reply to] Can't Post

Grandmas are irreplaceable in a different way from Moms. They get to do the fun stuff without the discipline, and sometimes they have more in common with you than your parents regarding certain things.

Let us know how things go.

The love between you both is beautiful and touching. [In reply to] Can't Post

Please continue those long conversations. It will be a beacon for her to reach for, knowing one who loves is near.

Consider it done dear RangerLady:)

Yes, you have my prayers--although my grandmothers [In reply to] Can't Post

were both rather puzzled by my LOTR obsession, they were both absolute treasures--their letters (I saved almost all of them) and my memories of times together and so many conversations still have a huge influence on my life.

Prayers for the best possible outcome, and peace for you and your family,

Ethel, D.

Done. [In reply to] Can't Post

We lost our grandpa just before this Christmas past. He was 91 and pretty healthy up to the end. My gramma however died far too young, almost 20 years ago, and I miss her.

I have prayed for you and your grandma... your relationship with each other sounds like it has been quite a blessing for both of you.

Praying for strength, for her and for you. [In reply to] Can't Post

She sounds like an amazing lady. And so do you.

Will do! [In reply to] Can't Post

Is she conscious? If not, do talk to her anyway, she'll very likely hear you and feel comforted. She sounds an absolute darling and I hope she'll recover. Do keep us posted!

Thank you all! [In reply to] Can't Post

All of your posts meant so much to me and my family and I thank you sooo much for your support and understanding.
The hard part to report dear fellow Ringers is that on Friday January 18th my beloved grandma took the last grey ship and ventured to that place beyond the sea where I cannot go. The gray rain curtain of this world rolled back and I hope she saw those White Shores and beyond to a far green country under a swift sunrise.
I cannot believe I will never see her again or talk to hear about our many shared interests. My only consolation is that it was not a hard death and she was at peace at the end and she is with her beloved family again somewhere and I will join her one day.
I hope she will tell Professor Tolkien for all of us how much he means to the world.
Again your prayers meant and still mean everything as we go through this painful journey.
Strength to us all--RangerLady Heart
