Five to Nine Months

That's what my grandmother said my aunt is estimated to have left. Dad talked to her (Nana) earlier today and she said that my aunt is going into a nursing home to help her with therapy and such. That she only has five to nine months left.

Mind you, Dad wants to confirm this with my uncle, but it seems like perhaps we might not only ask Saint Peregrine for his prayers, but also Saint Joseph.

This is not the kind of thing anyone likes to think about. But I heard Mother Angelica say that to know your death is imminent is a gift. In that kind of situation, you can get your soul ready for death. And this is more important than anything else you will do in life.

Please pray for our family, and especially for my aunt. If she isn't to make a recovery, please pray for her to have a good death.

(oh i did not like typing that out it looks so final)
