Al Roker’s wife has pleaded for “grace and mercy” after her family suffered a heartbreaking loss.
Fans urged Deborah Roberts, 62, to “breathe” as they told the ABC journalist that they were keeping her in their thoughts.
On Sunday, she shared a picture from inside a church and captioned it: “Grace and Mercy”.
It comes after Roker, who recently returned home amid his own health battles, shared the tragic news that his sister Patricia had died.
The 68-year-old popular Today weatherman posted a photo of his sibling, along with their late mother Isabel.
He mourned: “Our hearts are broken but feeling some heart balm that our sweet sister, Patricia, is with our Mom, Isabel, now after a stroke.
Patricia’s nickname was Boo, Al affectionately revealed.
Roberts shared a picture of herself and her dog that was taken in New York’s Central Park.
She was bundled up for the cold weather and was seen holding her pooch’s leash tightly.
She captioned the snap: “Saturday sigh” and included the hashtags “breathe”, “blessings”, and “gratitude”.
Fans revealed that they were keeping Roberts’ family in their thoughts.
One said: “Continue to breathe and do a little bit of self-care. Keeping the whole family in our thoughts.”
Another penned: “Yes breathe – you and your family stet in my prayers. So sorry for your loss.”
Fans expressed their condolences following the death of Roker’s sister, but said they were “glad” that he had been discharged from the hospital.
Roker revealed last week that he was “grateful” for family, friends, and the “medical folks”.
He had been rushed back to the hospital the day after Thanksgiving amid his ongoing battle with blood clots.
Earlier in November, the meteorologist was hospitalized for blood clots that he had in his leg and lungs.
Roker’s hospitalization meant that he was forced to miss festive events such as Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree.
Roberts revealed she was “beyond thankful” to have her husband home.
She said: “On this Thursday we are beyond thankful for beautiful, caring family and friends and the power of a brilliant medical team.”
Roberts heaped praise on her husband as she branded him a “strong man”.
She penned: “Looking back at this long-ago celebration with @alroker, I cherish the happy moments and look forward to so very many more.
“What a strong man. Blessed and grateful are the words defining our life today.”
Roker’s fellow Today host Savannah Guthrie commented: “CUTIES!! Right where you belong.”
….Grace & Mercy my buttocks. So Al’s sister died and Al is probably dying as well. Al spent decades lying to the people daily. He promoted the clot shots and I bet he and his sister took them. How about some “Grace & Mercy” for the millions of dead and maimed because of Al’s promotion of the deadly shots? Al better get good with his maker…as he has a lot of explaining to do once he goes.
Find Christ and then take a deep breath and feel blessed. People need to know their Saviour, because if they dont, you will need to hole your breath for a long time because you either want Him or you dont, claiming All beliefs work – ah no, but for those who thought so, they find out they were wrong and there are no do over, no mulligans, no: Oh its ok we understand.
No THEY understand alright – that you were given many opportunities and you chose not to have a relationship with Him, Them
Meh. I thought “take the JAB’ Roker had succumbed to his vaccine induced blood clots.
