My Uncle

I asked I think a week ago, I really am not sure right now when for prayers for him and also begged you that smoke to quit...well he's in most likely his last hours. He's in so much pain he's crying out (ok actually my  mom said screaming out) in pain and he's getting a dose of morphine every 30 minutes. My parents went to town earlier and got his prescription of haldol to help calm him down.

My grandma is hanging in there as good as she can. Mom said she's broke down crying a couple times, please keep Grandma in your prayers. Mom said my dad's having a hard time.

My mom is going to call me when he dies. I asked her to tell my uncle that I love him, my grandma, and of course my dad. (My mom had came home for a minute to make a pot of coffee and just get a break, she said it's just really hard to be there right now and so heart breaking). I am praying that God will take him soon, so that he does not have to suffer anymore and that my Grandma, my dad and my dad's siblings all feel Jesus holding them tightly to him.

I am also praying this will get my parents to quit smoking. I don't want this kind of death for them. I hate that my uncle has to die like this. It's so preventable. My heart is just aching right now.

I hope he does go quickly from here on in.  That is no way to be.  Poor man.  I'll pray for your family too.

That is so horrible.  They say it is the worst death.  I would not wish it on anyone.  Hopefully God will call him home real soon and end the pain.  Your poor G-ma, watching a son die, just awful.  Praying for peace for all in your family!
