Fear of losing aging parents

Dear St Jude, my parents are getting older and I live in fear that I will lose them one day. I lay awake at night haunted by thoughts about how and when they will pass.

I know this is part of life, but I humbly ask that you intercede with our Lord to keep them healthy and with me and their grandchildren for more years, until the kids are older and better able to handle this.

When the time comes for their passing, please make me strong and brave so I can help my family through this and be at peace.
