Ruby Moss somehow found the strength to drop to her knees in prayer. Although severely weakened herself from the virus, she cried out to God to plead for the life of Adolphus Moss, her husband of 32 years.
He was deteriorating rapidly. A nurse had just called from a hospital in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to warn that even with a fully engaged ventilator, Adolphus could no longer breathe.
“Hear my cry, O Lord. Spare his life,” Ruby repeated desperately. Several minutes into her prayer for a miracle, her answer was delivered: “I’m sorry. He didn’t make it,” said a voice on the other end of the phone.
