PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Heather and family

2015-Aug-03

Good Morning All,

It is with great sadness that I share the news of the death of our Niece, Heather. Heather was called home on Saturday. She was surrounded by the warmth and grace of those who love her. We know that she is at rest in God’s Eternal Embrace and are thankful for her deliverance from the pain and suffering that she endured but we miss her. Heather was and will remain in our hearts the beautiful young woman who graced our lives. She was beautiful of face, beautiful of heart and spirit, gave of herself to so many. A sense of humor and wit that was a joy to be around. She was a good person in all the ways that matter and she touched the hearts of just about all who came to know her. She dealt with life as best she could with the help of God. She loved her children, her husband, her family and with her wonderful smile and a twinkle in her eye, she would readily tell you that she did. I will always smile when I hear someone say, ” What were they thinking ” because Heather in a fun filled way was want to say,” Aunt Peg, What were they thinking.”

Please keep Heather, her husband Cameron, her Children Grace and Reid in your prayers as they so deeply mourn their loss. We, her family, are so grateful to Heather’s Mom and Dad, Joanne and Ed. We are so grateful to Heather’s Sister, Stacey ( Heather’s best friend ), Stacey’s husband Scott, their children, Riley, Kelsey and Griffin who shared their lives and joy so fully with Heather, Cameron, Grace and Reid. Their love knew no boundaries. We are grateful for Ryan. (Heather’s Brother) and his Wife Krystle, they were there for her. We give thanks for Heather’s friends who were close to her heart. We give thanks for Cameron, Grace and Reid, they were Heather’s Blessings and her life.

A good friend of mine, Jerry Lynch, shared a prayer to ease our pain and I take the liberty of sharing it with you because we all have known the pain of losing someone we love.

In The Arms Of God:

We don’t like to say goodbye to those whom we love whether
It be at school or a cemetery, separation is tough.
It is right for us to weep but there is no need for us to despair.
Heather had pain here, she will have no pain there.
She struggled here and will have no struggles there.
You and I might wonder why God may take her from our home,
But she won’t. She will soon be at peace in the presence of God.
When it is cold on earth, we can take comfort in knowing
That our loved ones are in the warm arms of God.
And when Christ comes, we will hold them too.

Our Family thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts. God Bless.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Mom with 2 small children

2015-Aug-01

Good Morning All,

I ask for your continued prayers for our Niece, Heather, this beautiful and good young woman, 39, two small children, is close to being called home. We are praying for a miracle but I think now that that miracle will manifest itself in her Husband Cameron being able to deal with what seems to be inevitable. Please keep Heather, Cameron, their Children, Grace and Reid, in your prayers. Prayer works. Thank you. God Bless.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for two

2015-Aug-01

Good Morning All,

Our prayers are needed for a little fellow, another of God’s Gifts. His Grandmother, Mary Beth, a friend from Church, has asked for our prayers. He has been operated upon to begin to remedy the problem of being born with one less Ventricle in his heart. He is at Presbyterian Hospital in New York. Mary Beth has told us that he is not doing well, I ask you to raise the volume for this little fellow and his Family as we pray that the MDs resolve this major issue and return him to his Family. There will be further operations as he gets older as the MDs work to make him whole. Thank you.

I have heard from Nancy Maksomski. Her Mom is slowly doing better, is still in a good deal of pain. Please keep Mrs. Maksomski in your prayers as we pray that the MDs are able to resolve what is wrong and eliminate her pain. Thank you. God Bless.
