Default Prayers for my Aunt and Uncle please

I got a call from my Aunt today.
Their youngest Daughter died from an aneurysm today.
She had Marfan Syndrome.
This is their last child.
The other 2 also died young, oldest Daughter from Marfan and their son from lung problems.
Their Grandson died 2 weeks after his mom so they also lost him.
Parents should never have to bury their children or Grandchildren.
To make things worse my cousin was helping her Mom take care of her Dad. His health is very poor.
My heart aches for them.

from Wiki
Marfan syndrome is a genetic disorder of connective tissue. It has a variable clinical presentation, ranging from mild to severe systemic disease. The most serious manifestations involve defects of the heart valves and aorta, which may lead to early death if not properly managed. The syndrome also may affect the lungs, eyes, dural sac surrounding the spinal cord, the skeleton, and the hard palate. People with Marfan syndrome tend to be unusually tall, with long limbs and long, thin fingers and toes.

Oh my, backlash. I'm so sorry. Yes, I will pray for your aunt and uncle, and for you too. In fact, I already am.

My own sister lost her oldest daughter about 15 years back to a heart problem her daughter was born with. My sister and her daughter both knew about it, but kind of just put it out of their minds thinking, or hoping it would never come to anything. But it did, and my sister has yet to fully recover. Her daughter was 22, married, with a 3-year old son.

You're right - nobody should have to bury their own children or grandchildren. I guess we'll no longer suffer those kinds of heartaches someday. But it's sure painful right now.

My prayers are with you and yours,
God bless you,

Backlash, I'm adding my prayers for your aunt and uncle and yourself of course. It is not natural to bury one's children, especially not all of them.

May they find peace and acceptance through their faith. God bless all of you.

In prayer,
