Update on Rebnavy

Postby tidewaterva » Mon Aug 28, 2017 8:16 pm

Reb's health has rapidly declined in the last few weeks. He has been sent home from the hospital and is in agonizing pain, no longer in his right mind. He is in hospice care. His wife is with him all her waking hours, and is a wonderful caregiver. Continued prayers from his friends on the forum are desperately needed. Without a direct miracle of healing, he will not be able to post again on this forum. If he completes his journey to eternal life soon, maybe we can think of a way to memorialize him on this forum. His love of history and his helping and compassionate spirit are what I will treasure most about him.

So sorry to hear that Reb is doing so poorly. Storming the gates of Heaven with prayers for Reb and his Mrs.

Echoing Blondie's statement about letting us know if they need anything.

Thanks for keeping us updated, tidewaterva.

Praying for Reb! Like Ice said ... sending the prayers right to Heaven's gate. I often like to visualize taking the person who is in need right up to the gate. I knock on the gate ... Jesus comes to the gate and I ask him to help the person who is with me, right there in front of him. -k

I'm so heartbroken to hear this news, but thank you for keeping us posted.

It's weird. I haven't met anyone on this forum face to face, but I just know that if I had met Bill that I would've really liked him. He strikes me as a person who is not easily forgotten. I've missed him here. It's like a spark is gone.

He is in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless him and his family.

Thanks for posting an update, Tidewater. I had been in contact with Reb regularly over the last weeks, but suddenly, nothing. I feared what was happening.

I have been praying for Reb and Mrs. Reb nightly and thinking of them often. My husband also had liver cancer and I know what they are going through. Even though we never had the opportunity to meet, I consider him a good friend.

I'm so sorry to here this news. I've enjoyed his posts here.

May the comfort of Blessed Virgin Mary be with him and his family. Saying the Marion Rosary now and the Divine Mercy Chaplet today at 3 PM for their intentions.

Jesus I Trust in You

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother;
to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.


Think, O God, of our friend who is ill,
whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard.
Comfort him upon his sickbed, and ease his suffering.
We beg for deliverance,
and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will.
We therefore pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care,
renew his strength, and heal what ails him in Your loving name.

I'm in tears over this news.

Lord, we plead with You for miraculous healing for our friend, Reb. Heavenly Father, this man is so very special to us. He brings us joy, friendship, knowledge, laughter, wit, and the voice of reason. These are gifts that are in short supply in our world today and we cherish them dearly. Our hearts are broken that Reb and his loving wife are suffering. Father, we beg you to ease Reb’s pain and comfort his family and friends. Hear the multitude of prayers flowing up to you and please spread a river of healing into our beloved friend. In Jesus’ name, we pray.

We Love you, Reb!

I hope Reb doesn't mind this, but his name is Bill and his wife's name is Janice, when you remember them in your prayers. I think God will know regardless. :-)
