On Friday evening I (Mel) received a call from my sister telling me that my abuelita (grandma) was in the hospital because of an brain aneurysm. The next evening she passed away. This was all very unexpected. The past couple of days have been filled with preparations for me and Evangeline to attend the funeral in Orlando, Florida.
My grandma was a Christian, and for that I rejoice that I will see her again someday. Even so, the suddenness of her death has hit our family very hard. Please be in prayer for us. The viewing is on Wednesday and the funeral on Thursday.
Evangeline and I leave for Florida tomorrow, and will be returning on Monday. Please be in prayer for me as I will be traveling alone with the baby for the first time (and flying with her for the first time). God will take care of us, I know.
