My grandfather is dying

My grandpa Bob has been in the hospital for 6 months for various health issues. He has been getting steadily worse and worse. Today I called my mom about some trivial thing, and she said that grandpa is in his final days. He has congestive heart failure and pneumonia. They have to give him morphine every hour to stop the pain and control the coughing. My mom, dad, and grandmother (his wife of 70 years) are at his side. Tomorrow they are moving him from the hospital so that he may pass away in peace at home.

My family needs your prayers
