Please pray for Dot

Please may I ask your prayers for our lovely friend Dot who is now dying in hospital. She is 85 and her last brother died last month. She had a fall about three weeks ago but didn’t really recover from surgery.

It looks as though she will be heading off Home any time now.

This remarkable lady has taken care of her family, her daughter, grandchildren and great grandchildren until only a few weeks ago.

During the Second World War she worked to make screws for Spitfires and told us many stories about avoiding bombs and hiding out on the canal tow-path if she was too far from a shelter when the sirens went off. Her garden Anderson shelter was filled in some years ago.

We lived next door to her for many years and she was a great support. We returned the favour as she nursed her husband Eric in his last days.

We saw her last night and Josh is there now. We hope the others can visit in the next day or so and say goodbye. Hopefully we can see her one more time before she goes.

May the Lord welcome her Home.
