Close to heaven now

Perhaps our prayers will go with him on angel's wings....keep praying.

Yesterday the nurse visited and said that Sammy had entered into the last phase called "actively dying". She said he had a few hours to a day or two. Sammy has not died yet but he is very close. He stopped taking milk yesterday and is almost completely unresponsive. Every breath he takes could be his last. I am typing this from his bedside. Our good priest, Monsignor Blacet, is coming out this afternoon. We are very much hoping Sammy will make it until then. As my sister says, Sammy's guardian angel has his wings wrapped around him now waiting to carry him gently home. Thank you so much to all who are praying.

God be with his family. Sammi will be forever in heaven with Jesus. And one day, like us all, his parents will be re-united happily forever with him. like we will be with mom, sharon, and joe.
