Prayers needed...

Dh's aunt has advanced liver cancer and is not expected to live past a few more weeks. If you could say some prayers for his aunt's family. She has 4 kids aged 21-40. She has grandchildren aged 4-8. Dh's other aunt had rectal cancer and fought for several years with it before she passed on Feb 29th. This aunt that now needs all the prayers she can get decided not to go through all of that. She tried a couple variations of chemo, none of them successful. She decided to end all treatment about a month ago. She is now hospitalized and awaiting a room at the local hospice. She doesn't want to die at home or at the hospital. I was very near tears today because she gathered all of her children around and told them how sorry she was that she wouldn't be around much longer. Her children, grandchildren, and husband love her immensely. I can't imagine how hard that was for her to do that. So please pray that her passing is as easy and peaceful as possible and that her children, grandchildren, and husband are surrounded by as much love and support as possible.
