I just got an email from my dad today about my grandma, Margaret (Mimi) Rowzie. She's 96 and my only living grandparent.
He says that Mimi had some sort of stroke ("TIA or CVA") last week. I don't have all the news on this but it seems that she's lost a lot of mobility and she can't even initiate conversations. It also seems that her short term memory has been severely affected.
For all that are able, I ask that you pray with me for Mimi. Please pray that God would be merciful to her in her current suffering. And since the day seems to be approaching, please continue to pray that she would be ultimately prepared to meet the Lord of All through faith in Jesus Christ, His Son and our Savior.

Although there has been no update on Mimi's condition, I have been very encouraged by the personal notes of support and confirmation that many dear friends and brothers and sisters in Christ are praying for my dear grandmother and for me and my family.
Much thanks to each one of you!
