Seventeen days ago: My pastor went into the hospital with pneumonia. That was a bad sign... Nine years ago, he nearly died because of pneumonia and ended up with a lung condition from that. He had had ups and downs with that situation since then.
Within the next day, the doctors had to put him on a ventilator. Because of how he had been struggling with his everyday life, he said that he would not stay on the ventilator longer than a week.
Nine days ago, my pastor died. Thankfully he doesn't have to struggle just to breath anymore. However, he has left behind his wife and two young girls. Any prayers or even positive thoughts anyone cares to send their way would be much appreciated.
