Default Prayers for my SIL

My SIL,Davids' Mom passed away.(In Corpus Christi)
The sisters had their own viewing and memorial last week.
Then she was cremated.
This Saturday the (hateful) sisters have taken over the burial of her ashes.
They were to placed in grave site with his Dad.

My SIL had planned a Memorial in Winnie Tx for all her old friends and remaining family.

The sisters control the ashes and wont let him.
Its all we can do to contain him.
I have counseled be the bigger man here--I know it hurts but continuing the fight only causes him pain.

I pray his heart which is broken at the lose of his Mother be soothed and all the anger will turn away at the terrible time.
I pray peace on these sisters.
These sisters reject a church service which is non-denominational---
Thank you for your prayers of peace.

Sorry for your loss, Anne. I'll include you and your family in our prayers. Family interaction can sometimes present the toughest obstacles we will face. We love them, they pi$$ us off, but they are still family and is the issue important enough to risk alienating other family members or even breaking off a relationship? No easy answers.

Went and cleaned grave site today/ordered flowers.
SIIL is a bit better today--He's had to work and its help keep his mind off it.

If I could take his pain---Thank you LORD for your Merciful Kindness.

What in the world does anyone gain by acting like that?

Hope the SIL is doing better and can get beyond this.
