Farewell with request for prayers

This is my final blog as the doctors and the respiratory team have advised that I do not have much time left to live due to the fact of being in the end stages of COPD as well as cancer of the lung.
I am hopeful that I shall be admitted to Our Lady’s Hospice in Dublin in the next few days. A friend shall drive me and accompany me on the boat from Holyhead.

The hospice was founded in the 19th century by the Irish Sisters of Charity. It is very Catholic and has daily Mass. It does not yet have internet, hence this will be my last blog.
As I say farewell I ask you to pray for me and for all who are preparing to meet God.

May Almighty God bless you and yours.
