I lost two friends (novus ordo Catholics) within one month. They were sisters and both died of cancer.
Gloria died on September 24 of pancreatic cancer, and her sister, Victoria, died this Monday, October 22. Vickie took a turn for the worse when she heard that Gloria had died.
Gloria's husband Terry who is not Catholic also suffers from cancer. When I talked with him on Friday, he was weeping. He said that his wife's family had previously purchased a family plot with a double grave for Gloria and Terry, so he has a place waiting for him to be near his wife. He misses her terribly.
Please pray for him that he may received the grace of conversion.
